The maintainers of the PHP programming language have issued an update regarding the security incident that came to light late last month, stating that the actors may have gotten hold of a user database containing their passwords to make unauthorized changes to the repository. This was initially treated as a compromise of the git.php.net server - but further investigation into the incident has revealed that the commits were a result of pushing them using HTTPS and password-based authentication.
