It was discovered that mysql.com was hacked, and was spreading malware. Shortly after kernel.org, this is another hack of a major distributor of open source software for the linux community (and also hosted on linux).
I wonder how many more major sites of the linux community have to be hacked before the bubble of linux/open source security bursts. It should start to dawn on people by now that indeed *nix-derived OSes are certainly not all that much safer by design, as was also covered in an article on OS X a while ago.
The fairy tale is over.
