LXer: After Heartbleed, We're Overreacting to Bugs That Aren't a Big Deal

Published at LXer:

Hereís something else to blame on last Aprilís Heartbleed security bug: It smeared the line between security holes that users can do something about, and those we canít. Getting that distinction right is going to be crucial as we weather a storm of vulnerabilities and hacks that shows no sign of abating.

What about all those vulnerabilities that have been sitting there for years and they refuse to bother with ? What about the horrible, obfuscated code base ? What about the fact that the OpenSSL foundation is a millions per year for-profit company that does security counseling ? Sure there is only one active developer, but why exactly is that, is it really because he is poor starving developer or because he is the only one who can understand the obfuscated code and rules it with an iron fist ?
