Bugs & Viruses Recently, the Linux version of UnrealIRCd was discovered to have had a Trojan worm its way into the source code. Even more embarrassing for the developers of Unreal is that the Trojan's been holding open the backdoor in the source code since November of 2009-- not very recently. And, of course, bloggers and press in general are taking the opportunity of another breach in Linux security to point out doomsday devices that don't really exist.

There was a huge shipment of Windows boxed copies on it's way to retail stores that got stopped by police a few years back. All counterfeit and riddled with malware. You can't even trust hardcopy distribution these days.. eesh..
