Ugh, this is a confused article. It's not until the penultimate paragraph,
that you get any indication that the bugs referred to the rest of the article
are not believed by de Raadt to be related to any backdoor that the FBI may
have built. That is, the title is misleading in a way that could easily have
been avoided, and very much looks as though it was intentional on the part
of the reporter.
