Linux suffers yet more ailments
Linux has of late been hit with a series of security breaches caused initially by a developers infected computer. The persistent virus has caused widespread damage across several domains and subdomains with linux.com remaining closed for business until further notice.
Apparently the attack was initiated on the 12th of August but lay unnoticed for another 2 weeks at least. It’s not known how long it will take to completely repair the damage caused.
The linux foundation hompage has the following statement “Linux Foundation infrastructure including LinuxFoundation.org, Linux.com, and their subdomains are down for maintenance due to a security breach that was discovered on September 8, 2011. The Linux Foundation made this decision in the interest of extreme caution and security best practices. We believe this breach was connected to the intrusion on kernel.org.”
