Here's a great example of why maintainers should sign their release

I think we should be referring to this when convincing people to do that
(I had moderate success so far - some projects started signing their
tarballs after my suggestions/requests, some did not).

IIRC for such backdoored downloads CVE IDs were assigned in the past
to properly track the status of distributions providing the affected 
piece of code. 

Can someone please assign an ID for this?
