OpenBSD Okay, this is potentially very big news that really needs all the exposure it can get. OpenBSD's Theo de Raadt has received an email in which it was revealed to him that ten years ago, the FBI paid several open source developers to implement hidden backdoors in OpenBSD's IPSEC stack. De Raadt decided to publish the email for all to see, so that the code in question can be reviewed. Insane stuff.

The level of real code review within OpenBSD can never match that of bigger and better supported projects, which is why this went undetected for as long as it did.


Or maybe it's just not true but just some lame attempt at attention.
