Re: Debian still secure or not

Im think a lot of people will have this question:
Can I use debian linux without take a risk of unsecure systems after
hack attack on the debian.org pages?
Can you use any system without *some* risk of insecurity? No, only if
you keep the machine switched off and unplugged. I don't think one
successful attack on a debian machine makes it any less secure. I
don't think we have the details about this attack yet.
I would expect any important information for sysadmins to be announced
quickly, in line with the Debian Social Contract. I don't see any
reason to criticise Debian because it is very open and public about
problems. Ask yourself whether you would even know about it if
$BIGCORP's GNU/Linux distribution servers got hacked.
