Yet More Malware Found on Gnome-Look

Yesterday we were the first to bring you the news about malware being targeted at Ubuntu users, and today, sadly, another malicious file was uploaded to gnome-look, this time masquerading as a theme called ‘Ninja’.

imageIf you fear you’ve installed it head over to the ubuntuforums @ This thread to help get a fix.

I’ve e-mailed Gnome-look twice for a response or comment regarding these rogue finds but as of 5PM-ish I’m yet to receive a reply. It would be great to know whether gnome-look (or any of their affiliated sites) intend to introduce safeguards to stop the exploitation of trusts that the Linux community has built up.

Again, Thanks to Noah for the alert.
