NSA denies it knew about and USED Heartbleed encryption flaw for TWO YEARS

Sureo

@thought

Code checking is a real drudge job and no one likes doing it. And if you don't have a concise specification it is nearly impossible.

The steps for writing quality code are

1. Write a spec

2. Write a test plan based on the spec

3. Write the code

4. Conduct a code review

5. Unit test the code.

I wonder how many of those steps were followed in this case?

US gov claims it spent TOO MUCH on wiretaps – and blames SPRINT

Sureo

Re: Sprint have missed a trick here...

To take your idea a step further, the NSA should start its own telecom company with attractive rates. They could then cut out those pesky middlemen and get direct access to their targets.

Internet Explorer 11 at it again, breaks Microsoft's own CRM software

Sureo

Bah

I am mainly a Firefox user and try to ignore IE updates as much as possible. But MS pushed IE11 as an "important update", so I went ahead and updated it. They could have made it an optional update or waited 6 months or a year.

America: Land of the free, still home of the BIGGEST spammers on the planet
