Postmortem on Transmission server compromise

Post by dtab »

Hi folks

Has there been a postmortem published explaining how Transmission's servers were hacked to serve malware? I understand that getting hacked is a common thing these days, I'm far more interested in seeing how the Transmission team has learned and increased their defences against a similar thing happening in the future.

We've posted a QA on the issue, but essentially everything is now on GitHub and protected by CloudFlare as well.
