Beware of hacked ISOs if you downloaded Linux Mint on February 20th! image/svg+xml

We were exposed to an intrusion today. It was brief and it shouldn’t impact many people, but if it impacts you, it’s very important you read the information below.

What happened?

Hackers made a modified Linux Mint ISO, with a backdoor in it, and managed to hack our website to point to it.

Ouch! With Linux Mint at the top of the DistroWatch charts, it would be interesting to know the number of downloads involved.
