Tails kernel hardening
Tails Design
Why it is important to check what the malloc function returned
Someone’s Been Messing With My Subnormals!
"TL;DR: After noticing an annoying warning, I went on an absurd yak shave, and discovered that because of a tiny handful of Python packages built with an appealing-sounding but dangerous compiler option, more than 2,500 Python packages—some with more than a million downloads per month—could end up causing any program that uses them to compute incorrect numerical results." But also "Unbeknownst to me, even with --dry-run pip will execute arbitrary code found in the package's setup.py. In fact, merely asking pip to download a package can execute arbitrary code (see pip issues 7325 and 1884 for more details)!"
Disallow execution of setup.py when "pip download --no-deps someproject" · Issue #7325 · pypa/pip · GitHub

How a backdoor in the Linux kernel was thwarted, from RISKS
"On 5 Nov 2003, an attempt to insert a very cleverly crafted backdoor into Linux was averted."
oss-security - backdoor in upstream xz/liblzma leading to ssh server compromise
Where tukaani's xz/lzma-utils 5.6.0/5.6.1 got a backdoor added by the author in the signed tarballs. Own note: And there is an example of why as package maintainers we should diff the tarballs they're vouching to users rather than rely entirely on git, although in that one it's at the end of ./configure which is nearly unreadable m4/autotools soup.
