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.

Before we assume the worst

I know nothing about Gregory Perry other than that he worked on OpenBSD in the past but, before we assume the allegations are true, would he have any motive for spreading FUD about OSS?

Just asking, not disparaging...
