> Kernel.org, where the vanilla Linux kernel and other Linux related code
> is stored, has been hacked in early August.
> The Kernel.org admins believe that the intruder gained access through a
> compromised account and then used software bugs to get root access to
> the Hera server where Torvalds Linux repository is located.
> The breach was noticed due to a suspicious error message on the affected
> server on August 28th.
> The Kernel.org guys are currently investigating the case. They are also
> planning to do a full reinstall on all Kernel.org boxes.
> They are also checking all the code they're hosting for manipulations.
> Of course, manipulating the Linux source code and adding a backdoor
> without anyone noticing would be a valuable target for any cracker.
> But the nature of Git makes it very unlikely that any changes done to
> existing code in the repository would be unnoticed.
> Details on why that is are explained in a posting on the Linux
> foundation's website:
> The chances that someone with root access on Kernel.org could add a
> commit under Torvalds name to his git repository without Torvalds
> noticing are almost zero too. This is explained in detail here:
> You can find the Kernel.org news item on their main webpage: kernel.org/
