It's the law of not coming across as arseholes.
For all we know, the fork's developer could be working for the NSA/KGB/GCHQ
Not informing people because they might work for a TLA about an exploit that said TLA quite likely knew about years ago?
<they must have known it was flawed
How does one do that? Though making sure these flaws can be discovered at all is the whole point of the effort.
Doesn't sound too promising for the future of their code.
The OTHER conclusion is that there may well be additional bugs of the same class still hanging around in OpenSSL as these bugs do not exactly declare themselves even when one is cleaning up the existing codebase.
His statements were met with some criticism centered on the original decision to fork OpenSSL rather than working with developers to improve its security.
Name and shame, please!
People who recommend turd polishing should not be allowed to operate in the vicinity of high-assurance code.
That obsession with "boots on the ground".
It's practically Freudian, polymorphically perverse.
Tenured navel gazing in a cul-de-sac?
This is not how the future was meant to look like when I was reading Neuromancer!!
NASA politely reminds you to please use Religiously Neutral ™ language.

At that point people on Mars will begin to differentiate between themselves and the 'Terran's' on Earth.
"They" will only do that if they have a self-sustaining, stable, growing economy and industrial base.
The wherewithal to get THAT going anywhere around Mars orbit is still a LONG way off. Where are those nanites?
Whoever holds Antarctica sits on top of the Earth
It's because Antarctica is the entry to Hollow Earth.
And once you manage to make a pact with the Greys and the Nazi Colonists from the Inner Core, all bets are off.
You can set up enough shielding (mainly by hiding behind the propellant tanks) and lost of plastic and a strong magnetic field. But to get coffin express to the reddish burnt-out cinder in a reasonable time, YOU BETTER HAVE THAT NUCLEAR PROPULSION THING DOWN PAT.
WHY CAN'T I SEE ANY NUCLEAR PROPULSION NOWHERE, EH? EH??? NO NERVAs, NO ORIONs, AND THE NEXT-GENERATION NUCLEAR PROPULSION PROGRAM FLUSHED. WHAT IS THIS???
Anyway, once you GET to Mars, you will still have to burrow fast like a creature from Watership Down because Mars has no magnetic field and no atmosphere...
"Ray Bradbury was full of shit!"
I was in front of the TV when they shot the landing with O.J. Simpson.
Who was later set up for murder so that he wouldn't be able to let the cat out of the bag.
Also, Uncle Sam is in debt to the tune of 21 trillion (or was 120 trillion), growth exponential. Yeah Humans on Mars. That's gonna fix things,
“The United States has been a leader in human space exploration for more than five decades, and our efforts in low Earth orbit with our partners are approaching maturity with the completion of the International Space Station."
The US has FAILED at human space exploration and the ultra-expensivy gypsy hotel in orbit is not "approaching maturity" unless you count permanently imminent plans for deorbiting as "maturity".
The only thing that "the US" (more like JPL, amIrite?) has been good at is robotic space exploration. It brings the bacon home. That's want you want. There is no point firing bacon into faraway sandy lands (it might even enrage people of certain religious tendencies).
Do you keep getting older while they stay the same age?
Don't remind me.
Yeah, but consider that the UK will now send an armored tank brigade and about 1000 men to Poland to drive around under Putin's nose like back in the times with Monty. Putin will yet know the power of the english taunt!
The Daily Mail is strong in this one. We must be careful.
unauthorized access comes to mind immediately
Quite a lot of it by authorities.

and don't pay tax
That's a new one.
Paying taxes is positively correlated with product quality,
I guess in a Picketty world, we would be blinded by the light coming out of the floppy disk slots.
Hold on! How do "ionize points in the air" using lasers?
And will the resulting X-ray and ozone emission not lead to MAJOR CALIFORNIAN WARNINGS anyway?
I hope we will see this in interplanetary robot probes.
Someone will just have to backronymize "GALACTICA" for maximum effect.
Oh noes! My liberal peace president "Serial Obomba" is not doing enough to support a totally out-of-control spy bureaucracy which is just waiting for the reincarnation of Heydrich to, like, totally grease the place up! OH WOES!!
Has anyone looked closely as this

Here's hoping he has a messy encounter with a random Silicon Valley 20-wheeler.

Instead of honest-to-God real-time terrain recognition in a matchbox the way the original Tomahawk Cruise Missile was doing it via a baseball-sized computer back when Reagan talked about the Evil Empire on TV.
Youngsters. These days they just want to have it easy.
Because it's organizations that do that, not nations.
Otherwise you end up with Soviet Horror OS that helps nobody.
China are the biggest source of attempts to get into my home network
So I heard you like spring rolls!
Stop being so cynically realistic Led
There's good news for those of us worried about a robopocalypse
Shurely you can try to tell it Monty Python's joke that causes you to LAUGH YOURSELF TO DEATH, used to devastating effect in the trenches of WWI.
If you ever discover it, that is.
You are now in violation of the anti-aggro code of 2020. Karma police will drop by shortly. Please assume the assume escort submission position and await further development.s
"Yes, grashopper. Non high assurance code for tasks needing high assurance code .... IT WILL HURT YOU."
(Maniacal laughter continues. Fade to black. Then a shot is heard. )
"The sudden proliferation of OpenSSL bugs is to be expected and a good thing. Like finding dirty socks during spring cleaning,"
Absolutely. But we really have to step it up.
1) Isn't today Snowden aka. "Summer of Surveillance" 1-year anniversary? Coincidence??
2) http://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/detail?vulnId=CVE-2014-0224: "Unable to find Vuln"... WUH?
Newflash: It's going strong, transforming the world into a Hollandaise. Literally.
And currently it is GOING STRONGER. Lots of stuff is redlining for a grand finale now.
I wonder whether the even will be CISCO after the next one?
Yeah, but so what?
This operation will be used in low-assurance SW for consumers (and fock them if it doesn't fully work)
or in SW that "may fall into enemy hands" and for which more money can always be found for "bang on it until it works" operations.
EL REG WHEN ARE WE GETTING "tt" TAGS?
Otherwise if I'm running code I have every right to reverse engineer it
Sure, but you may not be ABLE to.
It's like with these "human 'rights'" that we so often hear about which are just reachable in a platonic ideal of a western liberal society with acceptable economic infrastructure.
TwueCrypt from Twitwerland?
Saying that they understand this, but plan to host the website in Switzerland to evade their legal and moral obligations is utterly immoral...
I hope your fellow colleagues don't ostracize and bully you. Haranguing people on morality while not having a clue tends to backfire.
sell the rights to a patent troll who go after every Linux distribution and corporation using Truecrypt
And is then royally ignored by everyone because it's about copyrights and trademarks.
WHY IS THIS A PROBLEM?
Why should "percentage of tech startups founded by women" be an interesting number?
Why should it be a more important number than "percentage of houses painted in green"?
Why not consider "number of techs startups still alive after a year that were founded by women"? How about two years? Are the numbers better then or worse? Is there signal in the noise? Is the color of the front door more strongly correlated with startup survival?
How about "percentage of women not stupid enough get a slave to their work, the vagaries of the taxman and random business-unfriendly 'soak the nail that stands out' legislation"?
Why should it "tuned" somehow?
Is tuning it any more realistic than tuning the cosmic microwave background?
etc. etc. etc.
Protip: These "hoarders" HOLD THE CAPITAL NEEDED FOR INVESTMENT.
Of course, in the nice new world of Keynesian Retards and Egalistards, we fake up the capital by printing in central banks, making everyone paper wealthy while the while world falls apart around us.
But all of this has happened before -- and it will happen again.
The way of surviving is of course being the first in line when the uniforms are handed out. Moral qualms, me? I have no problem making sure people stay in their assigned camps when the time comes, thank you.
I'm also not sure what your comment brings to the table either really.
What kind of "Could well be Unfit for Purpose" is unclear to you?
The original post is suggesting that GnuTLS is bad. No one has said it isn't.
Thus GNU License trumps Fitness For Purpose.
The sadness of License True Believers (LTBs) in a double negative.
With that kind of attitude, you ain't gonna get much traction, kid.

"Looking across more of their APIs, I see that the code makes liberal use of strlen and strcat, when it needs to be using counted-length data blobs everywhere. In short, the code is fundamentally broken; most of its external and internal APIs are incapable of passing binary data without mangling it. The code is completely unsafe for handling binary data, and yet the nature of TLS processing is almost entirely dependent on secure handling of binary data.
I strongly recommend that GnuTLS not be used. All of its APIs would need to be overhauled to correct its flaws and it's clear that the developers there are too naive and inexperienced to even understand that it's broken."
Well, maybe it has been fully rewritten since then but I doubt it.
He will easily liaise with Wall Street types, Banksters, Hedge Fund Operators and other riffraff.
I feel like we need Bruce Willis and a team of misfits trained in the use of arcane Texan oild drilling machinery. But why?

Pretty sur, he's also now as "Tuna". Damn Ukrainians.
Because change for change's sake is good.
It appeals to teenagers and random hipsters who couldn't into IT if their backup depended on it.
blurry photos of what's supposed to be the next OS X
Photos. Of an operating system.
That looks like shit.
Anyone remember Dylan?
I was pretty excited about it - for a couple of months.
It also sank without a trace.
Well, back then Apple was throwing out people as fast as they could. Now they have the military budget of a small country in the bank. So....
Anyway. Bartender, one LISP please. With added STM.
