On August 23rd it was discovered that the credentials for several robot
service accounts with write-access to the container-images could have
leaked. Upon discovery, the credentials were invalidated. The earliest
possible leak opportunity was around March 10th, 2022.
While the investigation is ongoing, initial inspection of the images
seem to indicate it is unlikely any credentials had actually been
discovered and/or used to manipulate images. Nevertheless, out of an
abundance of caution, all possibly-affected images will be disabled.

We realize this issue has the potential to impact not only direct, but
also indirect use, such as base-images. The safety and integrity of
these images has and must take priority. At this time, all images have
been disabled. We will restore originals and/or rebuild fresh copies
based on further safety analysis.
We expect analysis to be complete and/or known-safe images restored,
before Sept. 8th. Though please keep in mind the research is ongoing,
and the situation remains somewhat fluid. When the examination work is
complete, or if any manipulation is discovered, we will issue further
Thank you in advance for your patients and understanding.
