Hats off to the peo­ple han­dling the recent secu­rity incident

I pull my hat to the peo­ple han­dling the recent secu­rity inci­dent on the FreeBSD infra­struc­ture.

Guys:

  • Thanks a lot for the count­less hours you invested to find and close the ini­tial attack vector.
  • Thanks a lot for the count­less hours you invested to get the machines back to a well known state.
  • Thanks a lot for the count­less hours you invested to ver­ify the source repository.
  • Thanks a lot for the count­less hours you invested to get back to a trusted pack­age build­ing environment.
  • Thanks a lot for the count­less hours you invested to get the “remain­ing” infra­struc­ture (and every­thing else I for­got to men­tion) back into a good state.

Or in short: Thanks a lot for the count­less hours you invested to get us from “we’re busted” to “we’re back”.

And last but not least, thanks for the deci­sion to be bet­ter safe than sorry regard­ing our user­base (while it is the only way to han­dle some­thing like this in a OSS project, I unfor­tu­nately think it has to be men­tioned instead of tak­ing it as an obvi­ous decision).
