I'm not sure if this is the best place to report this, but passgen contains a backdoor in its latest release. I opened an issue but I'm also not sure if this will get a response from the author because it is an old, unmaintained project.

https://github.com/cryptice/Passgen/issues/2

I included a screenshot showing the backdoor
