Re: Fedora Intrusion Revealed.

Thanks for the post.  I found this particularly funny:

The compromise was not the result of a software vulnerability, and as
we have previously stated, our investigation has revealed no such
vulnerabilities.


I also found it interesting that it appears they decided to conduct their own investigation.  Does Fedora employ Incident Response and Forensics people?

.. probably not, which is why they didn't find anything. ^^

It is always better to give than to receive. Especially advice.
