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

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.
