FreeBSD wiki offline for a bit

Due to a security issue in the moinmoin wiki software, the FreeBSD
wiki will be offline for a bit. I do not yet know if the issue
actually has been exploited in the FreeBSD wiki (haven't had the time
yet to examine it), but I took the wiki down just in case.

Note that even if the software was compromised, it was considered
untrusted from the start and as such heavily sandboxed (including
jailed) to keep it away from any sensitive parts, so there
is absolutely no reason to believe a compromise would go any further
than the wiki itself.

I hope to have the wiki back within 24 hours, assuming not too much
gets in the way.

For further reference see: and .

PS. this is entirely unrelated to the 2012 November compromise.
