The Linux Foundation Falls In New Security Breach
Phoronix: The Linux Foundation Falls In New Security Breach
There was the widely-reported Kernel.org security breach at the end of August, which resulted in the servers used for hosting the Linux kernel Git repository and other code to be forced off-line. Kernel.org has still not been restored, and now there's a related security breach at the Linux Foundation. Linux.com, the Linux Foundation itself, and related infrastructure are now "down for maintenance" this weekend...
This is getting big and embarrassing.
In my opinion it doesn't, it would be embarrassing if they tried to hide it or ignore it, as I would imagine some organization would do.

time for patched and security audits
I can't wait until we get the postmortem.
Trojan running in Linux? : kernel.org
Now Linux Foundation?
Maybe it is the year of the Linux Desktop. Seriously, I'm not trolling but it's scary to think I'm going to get propositioned by Symantec, McAfee and etc for virus software and such on GNU Linux.
Quite a 'black week' for Linux security.
