Is Ken Thompson's compiler hack still a threat?
@ruakh: maybe I do not understand your emphasis on 'this', but I happen to disagree. If this backdoor has been introduced in the company that happens to own the non-free, proprietary compiler and uses this compiler to compile new versions of the same compiler, this backdoor would have a much worse impact than in the original scenario. You'll only need one attack vector to infect all.
