FBI Poked Spy Hole in OpenBSD, Says Former Contractor


Allegations surfaced Tuesday that the FBI put backdoors into the network stack of OpenBSD. They were made by a Gregory Perry, who claimed to be chief technology officer of NETSEC, a government contractor. The allegations were emailed to Theo de Raadt, founder of OpenBSD. de Raadt sent it on to the OpenBSD community, stating he wouldn’t speak to Perry about the issue and suggesting the community can take whatever action it sees fit. Perry alleged that while he was the chief technology officer at NETSEC, he did some consulting for the FBI’s GSA Technical Support Center.
