    There’s a nice summary in the Reddit thread on the topic: https://www.reddit.com/r/programming/comments/6qwtfz/kite_injected_telemetry_into_the_third_most/dl0psv0/

    Apparently, Kite “forgot” that they had put telemetry in the package.

    Personally, I completely expect Kite to continue taking over open source software and spy on the users of said software, then half heartedly apologize and remove the telemetry/ads once they get caught before moving on to its next victim.
