The university of Minnesota has been banned from making any commits to the Linux kernel after it was found out they'd been submitting bogus patches to the LKML to knowingly introduce security issues: https://lore.kernel.org/linux-nfs/YH%2FfM%2FTsbmcZzwnX@kroah.com/ They also published a paper: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/QiushiWu/qiushiwu.github.io/main/papers/OpenSourceInsecurity.pdf I don't know the scope of this research, but it could involve other OSS projects, now or in the future, as well. Hence this e-mail. If you feel it's spam or needless drama, feel free to ignore. Cheers, Peter
