Linux Mint hacked: Malware-infected ISOs linked from official site


Re: With success, comes malware..

Curiously enough, from reading about this event on several blogs, the Linux Mint website was hacked, restored, and then hacked again. The website is offline as I write, while the Mint people work on the server.

I downloaded the KDE 17.3 version of Mint because the 17.3 Cinnamon package wasn't ready at the time, but I couldn't make it work. I was thinking about downloading Cinnamon yesterday but didn't get around to it, and for once my laziness paid off. Although I'm still planning to get Mint and try again.
