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.

Theo De Raadt probably should have removed that guy's phone numbers from the emails before publishing it online...

If I was the person involved, I wouldn't have been terribly happy with my name mentioned in this context. The phonenumber, etc. is just fluff.

"I did not really intend for Theo to cross post that message to the rest of the Internet, but I stand by my original email message to him in those regards."
