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.

Except in the case of Gentoo. Hopefully a more complete list of affected distributions will turn up in the next few days though. It would be interesting to see how far it managed to get. Ideally, with reports of Windows and other platform's who had the malicious tarball compiled for use.
