I'd have thought it unlikely that it was law enforcement: they aren't going to let people know they were there, when they can use the data to monitor activity rather than have the users change everything ASAP.

So "scrawling" “Your data has been leaked” and “This forum has been hacked.” across the home page seems rather counter productive.

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
