I doubt very much of value is on github.com as opposed to more secure Github Enterprise installations behind company firewalls.

Uncounted open source projects that end up being run with root privileges are on github. It all depends on how you determine value.

If value is defined as the number of machines that can be backdoored, communications intercepted and so on then it may very well be that that other form of value will be realized in good time as well.
