Hi !

Speaking at the keynote LinuxCon panel this year, Linus Torvalds, who created the open-source Linux operating system 22 years ago, revealed that the government had approached him about installing a backdoor into system’s structure. Linux is the preferred operating system for the privacy conscious infosec community.
It’s just the latest in a string of revelations illustrating how the NSA have for a number of years attempted to intervene in the very structuring of online communications and cryptography to enable easier surveillance.

If you actually watch the session the bit about him 'admitting' it was obviously a joke. After everyone got a good laugh he then responds with a more serious no.

The Media however hungry for clicks is going around saying that the NSA demanded a backdoor - because that will get people to click the links.
