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).
