Github’s been hacked. VentureBeat’s Ben Popper writes:
Github, the service that many professional programmers use to store their work and collaborate on coding, was hacked over the weekend. A young Russian named Egor Homakov showcased a loophole in Github that would allow anyone to commit to the master copy of a project, meaning they could alter or delete the source code. But when his account was suspended by Github, a furious argument broke among developers out about his intentions. Was he doing the community a service by exposing the flaw or taking things too far with a very public hack?
