    Default 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.

    Default time for patched and security audits

    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.
