University of Minnesota assistant professor Kangjie Lu caught allegedly deliberately sending buggy patches to Linux kernel as some kind of breaching experiment, resulting in the whole university being banned from Linux kernel development: https://lore.kernel.org/linux-nfs/YH+zwQgBBGUJdiVK@unreal/, https://lore.kernel.org/linux-nfs/YH%2FfM%2FTsbmcZzwnX@kroah.com/, via https://lobste.rs/s/3qgyzp/they_introduce_kernel_bugs_on_purpose
They claim to have been declared IRB-exempt but this appears to be a mistake by the IRB.
