GNU Servers have been 0wn3r3z3d

Got this story from here. Seems the GNU servers have been cracked by hackers since March…. ouch.
I bet a code audit is now running to make sure nothing malicious has been inserted into the GNU code however that’s got to make you wonder since so many organizations use GNU tools. Good luck auditing it. My experience with looking through some of the code of the FSF is it’s a damned tangled mess to sort through. I’m not sure I recommend it as good reading for learning how to write clear code but the code does work (on lots of platforms too).
