Phree Software Download Website Fosshub Distributed MBR Tainting Malware

This week the free software download website Fosshub distributed master boot record tainting malware after reportedly being compromised (archived). The alleged attackers are trumpeting that in spite of producing malware that infected the master boot record of affected machines, that bundling further malware with an impact beyond vandalizing machine start up output was too much for them. Such claims are to be taken with a grain of salt and affected machines cleansed with fire. Sorry for your loss.
