There is no official explanation yet; forensics take some time to do
 but there's some official detail at http://www.wiggy.net/debian/
 doing forensics while services are still down is tricky; do you want
bugs.debian.org back or do you want to know what happened? obviously you
need to do enough forensics to be sure the BTS wasn't the attack vector,
but once you know that where should you direct your efforts
