Subject: [OS:N:] ftp.gnu.org compromised

This seemed important enough to spread around.

                                 Summary

   * gnuftp, the FTP server for the GNU project was root compromised.

   * After substantial investigation, we don't believe that any GNU
     source has been compromised.

   * To be extra-careful, we are verifying known, trusted secure
     checksums of all files before putting them back on the FTP site.

If you download gnu source tools, it would be wise to see if the second
statement changes.
