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.

It's a very good article, thanks for the link. In fact it should have deserved more relevance in the media than the present Linux case.
The outrageous response to this situation, very convenient for MS, was also commented by Brian Proffitt in the IT World: http://www.itworld.com/open-source/110930/trojaned-app-demonstrates...
