PyPl halts new projects and user registrations after flooding with malware

The world’s largest open-source Python package repository, PyPI, has disabled new user registration and prevented existing users from uploading new projects over the weekend, citing an uncontrollable flood of malicious code being uploaded to the platform.

In an announcement posted on PyPI’s status page, the organization stated, “The number of malicious users and malicious projects created in the index last week has exceeded our ability to respond in a timely manner, especially with many PyPI admins on leave.”
