Linux Mint hacked on its own site

If you happen to have downloaded an ISO disk image of the Linux Mint OS  during the weekend of February 20 and 21, beware – hackers altered the contents to infect the software with botnet malware. The version that was compromised is version 17.3, the Cinnamon edition. The modified image file containing a backdoor is said by the official Mint blog to not affect many Linux users.
