assumption questionable

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on August 10, 2004 11:16 PM
I don't even buy the author's assumption that OpenSSH is insecure. If so, that would be news to me and he should write another essay on why OpenSSH is insecure. His argument that OpenSSH "must frequently be patched", even if I granted his definition of "frequently" (whatever that is), is unconvincing. Any software must be patched occasionally or even frequently. OpenSSH is no different and the necessity of periodically patching software does not, by itself, suffice to deserve calling said software "insecure."
