he sudden departure of a developer from GitHub, along with the Go code packages he maintained, has underscored a potential security issue with the way some developers rely on code distributed through the community site.
Donat argued that GitHub should address the issue, noting that it would not be difficult to revive an abandoned account name and use it to distribute malware.
Ooops. :D
