I'm sorry to report that one of our important machine from the
Frugalware infrastrucere was compromised on August 25. I took
a while till we found out the details how that was possible,
read  here if you're interested.
In short: we found that the attacker installed a backdoor
similar to kernel.org one, and we already reinstalled the
machine, plus took steps to prevent such a similar attack in
On the bright side, we verified that none of the Frugalware
Git repos nor the binary packages were modified during the
attack, so you don't have to fear the Pacman-G2 installed any
problematic update to your machines.
Thanks for your understanding.
