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.

Why would anyone wait 10 years, no NDA can be used to suppress a crime and failing to report a crime is in itself a crime.

It is not necessarily a crime. A scandal yes, but not necessarily a crime. I'm surprised that he can talk about it at all after as little as 10 years.

It's not a crime.

It's just immoral.
