That's nice to see the NSA is contributing to the OSS community. I just randomly picked one of the NSA GitHub repositories, analysed it with VersionEye (https://www.versioneye.com) and found already 25 security vulnerabilities. Who is the best person to contact in this case? Here is the security report: https://www.versioneye.com/user/projects/59479cd06725bd00123....

They say it clearly themselves:

> The government benefits from the open source community’s enhancements to the technology.

They're hoping that by putting this code out there, unwitting dupes will then collaborate with them to contribute to the surveillance state.
