Awoogah – brown alert: OpenSSL preps 'high severity' security fixes


Re: Pisses me off...

Fair enough. Don't blow your own trumpet when you're surrounded by Miles Davis.... on the other hand don't rely on something written by people who were likely drunk when they wrote it to secure your website.

Honestly.. people rely on this for security and nobody checked the code until now? It's written by people IN THEIR SPARE TIME for fuck's sake. Oh yeah, I just bought this amazing sports car. The guys who designed it did it in a shed in whitstable.. it hasn't actually got an MOT yet but I'm hopeful....

I write an open source application. My code is shit and I know it but nobody relies on it for security. What makes people think that open source is somehow good? Usually it's people like me who haven't a fucking clue what they're doing. We write stuff we want because we can't get paid for doing it.
