From the official Bitcoin FAQ:
Could miners collude to give themselves money or to fundamentally change the nature of Bitcoin?
... Bitcoin is a distributed network, so any changes implemented to the system must be accepted by all users. Someone trying to change the way Bitcoins are generated would have to convince every user to download and use their software
If somebody hacked bitcoin.org, couldn't they send out an update to the Bitcoin protocol/client that contained malicious "steal all your money" code?
Since the update came from official sources, everyone running bitcoin would see this as a regular and standard update, when it actually was malware.
