Submission + - 'Anonymous OS' Taken Offline Over Security Concerns (securityweek.com) 2

wiredmikey writes: Slashdot Sister site SourceForge, has removed a controversial Ubuntu-based operating system from its Website due to claims the software is laced with Trojans.

Dubbed “Anonymous-OS”, the operating system was downloaded from SourceForge nearly 40,000 times before it was taken down. Affiliates of the Anonymous collective however have been crying foul. One of the more popular Anonymous Twitter accounts, AnonOps, declared Wednesday that the so-called AnonOS was fake and “wrapped in Trojans.” Another account, YourAnonNews, warned users they “can’t vouch for it.”
