After gluck.debian.org started experiencing problems writing to its disks on Sunday we have tried our best to get the machine back in shape. As we have checked all files that we could and fixed all services that had broken files, best to our knowledge, we have decided to bring the machine back online. Please verify the files in your home directory. !!! Please check the files in your home directories! !!! After several runs of e2fsck the machine was running stable again. However, unfortunately, the filesystem that contains /home (and hence /org as /home/org) was totally screwed. Many inode numbers were exchanged by a near random permutation. As a result of this, former files were turned into directories which contained files that weren't supposed to be where we found them. Other files were named properly but had wrong content. Also several files contained blocks in the middle which weren't supposed to be there, hence, broken content. We have restored the services that were running on gluck.debian.org as good as we were able to. We have also removed spurious files in users home directories. We are unable to check the content of the remaining files in users home directories, though. This machine hosted the following service (some only as local copy) cdimage.debian.org recovered cvs.debian.org checked, see below ddtp.debian.org disabled before ftp.debian.org only a copy, recreated keyring.debian.org only a copy, recreated lintian.debian.org broken, needs to be rebuilt packages.debian.org moved to another machine admin.debian.org verified people.debian.org need to be checked planet.debian.org fixed popcon.debian.org verified release.debian.org fixed www.debian.org restored woody chroot recreated The following CVS repositories are currently hosted on gluck: /cvs/webwml restored from backup /cvs/dak needs to be verified /cvs/debian-admin not affected /cvs/debian-doc restored from backup /cvs/debian-boot restored from backup /cvs/debian-openoffice checked, should be mostly fine /cvs/debian-planet fixed /cvs/debian-policy looks fine /cvs/debbugs looks fine /cvs/deity looks fine /cvs/dpkg looks fine /cvs/qa looks fine /cvs/tetex fixed (one corrupt file to be replaced) There are still problems in developers home directories. These need to be verified from the developers on their own. In particular, the public files in the public_html directories need to be verified to be not broken. The .ssh directory has been disabled for all users. In the directory /home/__Corrupt-R-US/$LOGNAME you'll find the spurious files with wrong ownership that were found in the developer's home directory. Feel free to take a look at them. We will remove these on May 1st, so don't wait too long with checking whether anything useful is included. !!! Please check the files in your home directories! !!! ------------------------------------------------ If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Debian admin team at <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Regards, Joey PS: There are 23 accounts that had a current .ssh and a disabled one from the break in as well. If you instate a new .ssh directory, it's probably a good idea to remove the old one(s). -- It's time to close the windows.
