Nokia shuts down developer forum following security breach


Nokia (NYSE:NOK) has been forced to temporarily take down its mobile application developer community website following a major security breach. "During our ongoing investigation of the incident we have discovered that a database table containing developer forum members' email addresses has been accessed by exploiting a vulnerability in the bulletin board software that allowed an SQL Injection attack," Nokia said. The database includes members' email addresses and, in some cases, birthdates, homepage URL or usernames for AIM, ICQ, MSN, Skype or Yahoo. It does not include passwords, credit card data or other sensitive information. Nokia adds that other accounts are not affected and that it plans to restore the developer site to working order as soon as possible. Post
