    It isn't a bad idea to be careful, but it seems to be a joke.

    Nothing unusual has been spotted so far and the hacker's Github where his original statement was hosted has since been banned and now 404's. With that said, we treat all threats of this nature seriously and urge our users to be cautious when installing homebrew apps, particularly Wii ones - it's only common sense to verify your binaries. :)

    It seems he has a new GitHub account and the dates were pushed back by a week.

    So rinse and repeat? People just need to send it to github again?

    Once these apps are out, there's no stopping the distribution of them.

    That's correct, but mods can at least keep it to a minimum on GBAtemp.
