Sarbox deals with large public companies. It has absolutely nothing to do with the vast - I mean vast majority of Linux users. Even if some violation of the GPL occurs, I doubt that it would be material in terms of the reporting requirements. This report doesn't even come close to reporting an issue.

I think the entire argument is bogus and an attempt to create publicity. It one of those look at us and buy our stuff because we have a lawyer. It's FUD, disinformation and a big so what.

I agree, it is. And so is the wasabi's whitepaper they are referring to. However, wasabi is a name in the embedded market. Quite a few people may actually end up reading their whitepaper and believe it. We should get some anti-FUD going.
