IANAL, but use of pseudonym is allowed by copyright law, so I don't see big problems. (Or maybe the editor (Linus in this case?) should know the real name, I don't remember).

Code of uncertain origin

It's apples and oranges. Nobody's concerned with Mr Multinymous' copyright. They're concerned with the credibility of the information he supplied as to whether the code was stolen or not. An anonymous statement like this doesn't have much credibility; a statement that could be traced back to someone who could be made to pay if it turns out to be a lie has more credibility.
