I think we should be referring to this when convincing people to do that (I had moderate success so far - some projects started signing their tarballs after my suggestions/requests, some did not). http://scarybeastsecurity.blogspot.com/2011/07/alert-vsftpd-download-backdoored.html New vsftpd homepage: https://security.appspot.com/vsftpd.html Alexander
