Liz Upton who’s Foundation’s director of communications, Tweeted a screenshot of an Email from a ” Business Officer ” called Linda who promised to give PPI (Pay Per Install) from a exe* executable file.
The name of company has not disclose in Screenshot however Linda’s approach seems to be unprofessional. However the offer seems genuine. This situation once again raises the question regarding the necessity of hardware validation. The prospect that a persistent attacker installs malicious implants and software onto consumer devices is a serious threat. The Raspberry Pi Foundation has declined Linda’s offer, and described her company as “evildoers” .
