Linuxmint.com got hacked today. Hackers were able to gain access to the website. They were able to direct users to download a modified ISO image that contains a backdoor. The hacked version potentially can steal user’s information. The hacked version only applies to the downloaded Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon edition. The Linux Mint blog say to always verify the checksum of the downloaded ISO file.
