Newsbrief: As part of an ongoing campaign of harassment, Depression Quest developer Zoe Quinn's Dropbox account was hacked last night. Because of his defense of Quinn, Polytron's Phil Fish (Fez) also had multiple accounts hacked, including the @Polytron Twitter and website. Personal information for both developers has been posted publicly online.

Contact info for other developers has likely been stolen in these attacks. The Polytron website was reportedly also infected with malware for a period last night; it is now down, as is Polytron's Twitter account.

Other developers, particularly those who participate in social justice discussions online, are potential targets.

It is recommended that any developers who are concerned about security read this blog post on shoring up your accounts written by developer John Seggerson and implement two-factor authorization for their accounts. Links to enable 2FA on many popular websites and services can be found here.
