Update on Services

We appreciate your patience. All SourceForge services are operational at this time with the exception of ViewVC and CVS. Interactive shell service was restored today and we expect ViewVC to return today (Monday), barring complications. We intend to have CVS service online by the end of the week.

Please note that, aside from CVS, our SCM platforms (Subversion, Git, Hg, Bazaar) have remained online. If you’re encountering issues with these platforms, please confirm that you have reset your password. If problems persist, please contact our support team (

CVS service restore has been time-consuming due to the design of that service. CVS data is housed on direct-attached storage on a small pool of servers. Data restore from backups is in-progress and reload of machines is in-progress as of today (Monday). We intend to have CVS service online by the end of the week.

We have concluded our review of SCM data for the SourceForge Beta SCMs and traditional SCM offering (SVN, Git, Hg, Bzr; excepting CVS, whose data is being restored) and have found no indicator of data tampering. We will be providing further data to projects whose repositories were modified in the attack window (we believe legitimately by their project team) as that they may conduct further validation using the repository access provided through interactive shell service.

Finally, with the rollout of interactive shell service today, we are completing preparations to start the mass rollout of our new Project Web service offering tomorrow (Tuesday). This work will commence with the migration of projects in the A-G unixname range in a Tuesday/Wednesday timeframe.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our support team at

Thank you,

The SourceForge Team
