The president of open-source software user group Linux Australia has called on registered attendees of the organisation's conferences for the past three years to change their passwords after it was discovered that the server hosting its conference management system had been breached.

According to Linux Australia president Joshua Hesketh, the breach was discovered after a large number of error reporting emails were sent on March 22 by the server hosting the Zookeepr conference management systems for a number of Linux Australia's conferences.

The server hosted the conference systems for Linux Australia's 2013, 2014, and 2015 annual national conferences, along with the python programming PyCon Australia 2013 and 2014 conferences. In a message to the Linux-aus mailing list, Hesketh encouraged conference attendees who had registered for the events to change their passwords on other web services or use a password service if the same passwords had been used when registering for the conferences.
