Re(1): Security Alert: Debian OpenSSL flaw affects many systems

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 10.0.0.245] on May 19, 2008 11:57 AM
I reckon that's one of the reasons this particular vulnerability is so interesting: I can't justify placing blame on anyone (or at least, not exclusively).

Kurt tried to get it checked (admittedly, perhaps not to a sufficient standard, but I can't totally blame him).

The OpenSSL guys had a (cursory) look. After all, it was only really run through them on a mailing list, so it's easier to miss things.

Just can't really blame either party enough to be upset at anyone!
