Your implication is that they were wrong to ignore the security vulnerabilities in kernel.org before and right to worry about them now. The opposite could be true too. As the risk is not greater now than before this compromise, aren't kernel.org people overreacting?
This is the same thing that always perplexes me when a person starts wearing a seat belt because a celebrity died by not wearing one. It's hard to believe the person has significantly more information about the risks of driving beltless after that one death, but there's a lot of psychology involved.
