Here's an interesting report of skulduggery related to the rowhammer bug.
PassMark say they received an offer to not release a rowhammer test in their MemTest86 tool, in return for payment:
"We had anonymous contact offering to act as a go between between us and unnamed memory companies, with a view to paying us not release the new version of MemTest86. Who knows how serious the offer was.
Needless to say we didn't take up that option, and just released the software anyway.
But the issue is a BIG issue. The lack of publicity up to now is somewhat surprising considering the implications. Many computers are fundamentally (slightly) unreliable in a random ways. Maybe this doesn't matter for home use, but for medical devices, banking systems, flight control systems, etc.. it is a big deal."
