#Heartbleed has now entered its final phase:

Mainstream media attempting to understand what is going on and reporting incoherent nonsense.

Gods help us all.

Well, at least they've taken out some of the rampantly insane bits, but considering that the man spun a completely fabricated tale, I don't think they should have even left Mr. Farrell's quotes in there.

Yeah, but now he's loose again.  Heh.

Small heartbleed caveat: You need to be running a version of openssl capable of understanding the TLS heartbeat extension (and therefore, one you probably just had to upgrade in a hurry) before the s_client invocation will actually tell you a remote server accepts heartbeat requests.  0.9.8 and probably 1.0.0 will be returning false negatives for luls.

At least one person will see this, curse aloud, and then go yell at someone about an appliance.

The TL;DR:

If you were using openssl 1.0.1 you need to patch up to 1.0.1g.  If you were using 1.0.0 or older, you don't really have to care.

If you were using a vulnerable version, you need to upgrade (immediately), and if you have a concern about espionage, generate a new key and CSR, and then contact your cert signer about signing the new key (should be free or a small fee) and revoking the old key.

If you're using any JIRA-like stuff with session cookies, you should probably invalidate all the old ones when you're done with the above (your web developers should immediately know if this is the case, otherwise... find new web developers).  Impact to users: They'll have to login again (i.e., no big deal).

Remember to breathe.

I'm sure. Rhel is just the one I deal with most on a professional basis.

...and I'll go on record as saying that I don't believe for a second that any amount of "atonement" was going to satisfy the mob carrying the torches, certainly not with every drama whoring web rag out there fanning the flames.

When one sits idly by and allows misdeeds go unmentioned, simply because "They're on my side", one invites the extremists among you to run amok.

When Shakespeare said, "All the world's a stage," I doubt very much he could have imagined the immediacy of the reaction of the world to the actors.

Though we'd like to think we have freedom of speech, that freedom is very much in front of other people. With social media. I think, in fact, that many take for granted, the gift to speak one's mind.

Sadly, it makes discrediting anyone incredibly easy, including someone who made a small donation, in the past decade, to Proposition 8.

It appears that in this neighborhood, holding a bottle of chocolate sauce does not command the respect it should when Jehovas' Witnesses come calling.

I will have to do something about that.

After a couple of rounds of my method we got on a list. I actually saw churchy people stop on the sidewalk in front of my house, consult a clipboard, shake their heads mumble and move on. I had a huge grin on my face at that moment.

Consider this a public service announcement,

I don't use LinkedIn.  They're at the very epicenter of the self-important middle-management bullshit that I so deeply despise.

Also, if you're installing their app, be forewarned that it's probably going to email me and try to get me to add you to my profile... despite the fact that I do not use LinkedIn.  This is both misleading of one's  users, and spamming me.  Neither of which does a single damn thing towards making me think my opinion of LinkedIn and their management is anything other than entirely accurate.

For those of you still wondering whether or not you need to have your SSL certificates reissued, here's a website that should help remove all doubt.

+Stephen Leavitt You would be far from the only person who's had an off day over of this, man.  The reactions to where I posted this on FB make me kinda worried about some of my friends.

...but ya know, at least they're not working for some company that specializes in these things and merely pretending to know what they're doing.  *snicker*

Sound familiar to anyone?

I had a feeling that the purple I was seeing wasn't just because "the flash was off".  Under-lighted photos tend to come out grainy because the longer collection/exposure time exacerbates the difference between the individual cells in the scanning element.

There are actually a number of reports about this on the HTC One.

This isn't quite about Zoe and whether it's the real culprit or not.  For the last couple of weeks I've been having people showing me photos they've taken that have had such a strong purple tint to them I thought they were Instagrammed.  They kept telling me "oh its because it's low-light" as if that explains everything.

Normally under-lit photos come out "sparkly" because the long exposures exacerbate the difference between the individual miniscule light sampling elements in the camera (and the cheaper a camera element is the worse this particular effect manifests).

I, on the other hand, am pretty sure it's a sign the camera element on these phones are damaged because I've got long experience with cheap "micro-cameras" and regularly try to take photos in positively stupid underlit and overlit conditions, up to and including bizarrely-advised experiments with IR-enhancements.  What I was seeing on peoples screens was what I've grown to identify as a  _burned_ sensor.  If you actually search for "camera phone purple tint" you will find loads of similar threads with the same symptoms---in some cases people with rather expensive digital cameras--and the commonality is overheating cooking the receiving element.

It sounds like a great place, and then you get there and find out... The facility itself just doesn't exist anymore. No rocks to be ogled, shiny or otherwise. That having been said, the new business that has taken it's place has pretty good Japanese food.

The employees are lazy and if they get your order wrong you've no hope of getting them to correct it.
