Mac Developer: Feds pin brazen kernel.org intrusion on 27-year-old programmer | Ars Technica
Feds pin brazen kernel.org intrusion on 27-year-old programmer | Ars Technica: "The indictment refers to kernel.org officials P.A. and J.H., who are presumed to be Linux kernel developer H. Peter Anvin and kernel.org Chief System Administrator John "'Warthog9" Hawley, respectively. It went on to say that Austin used the credentials to install a class of extremely hard-to-detect malware known as a rootkit and a Trojan that logs the credentials of authorized users who use the secure shell protocol to access an infected computer."
If the chief admin of the kernel was 0wned what mere mortal is safe?
