Re: Can happen to anyone...

It's a testament to Mint's popularity that it's starting to show up on the radar of baddies.

Not so sure it is Mint per sa, but open source. Given the discussion being had about Apple and the FBI and what is preventing the FBI from rolling their own iOS update, it is clear that the OS update mechanism is something worth hacking.

It is clear the oss community are going to have to get better at the secure distribution of their wares to users.
