Privacy, Security, Encryption Well, this is embarrassing. MySQL.com has been hacked (fixed by now), and was turned into a platform serving malware to unsuspecting visitors. The criminals did this by injecting a script which redirected visitors to a website which uses the BlackHole exploit pack, which probes the browser used and serves up an appropriate exploit. Computer security blogger Brian Krebs saw root access to MySQL.com being offered for $3000 only a few days ago.

Is that really the point? Or is the point that you, despite saying you're an OpenBSD user, are especially touchy whenever anybody criticizes Windows. Why is that? Why would you care when you're an OpenBSD guy?
