“It flies in the face of the agency’s comments that defense comes first,” said Jason Healey, director of the cyber statecraft initiative at the Atlantic Council and a former Air Force cyber officer. “They are going to be completely shredded by the computer security community for this.”
The article's blathering about "the weaknesses of open-source development" is sheer nonsense. Yes, open-source code has bugs. So does closed-source proprietary code. ALL code has bugs, because all code is written by humans, and humans are ... well, human, and make mistakes. The difference with open-source code is that you stand a chance of finding out about it, and once found it will be fixed, probably within days as Heartbleed was. With closed-source, proprietary code, you may never find out about the bug, and even if the vendor finds out about the bug, they may simply decide not to fix it. There was a known bug in Microsoft Excel that went intentionally unfixed for more than ten years, because fixing the bug would break large amounts of other Microsoft application code that was by then dependent upon the bug to work properly, and Microsoft simply couldn't be bothered. It was easier to leave the bug unfixed.
I am a geek , a linux geek , photography geek , hell, a generic geek I love technology and every thing to do with it
Adding me to your circles
My Open source life started with Coral Linux ,I now use almost entirely Open Source / Free software. I advocate Open Source / Free Software when ever possible.
My first experience was Coral Linux in late 1997 because I read about it in a magazine and wanted to try it so I bought a Linux book with a CD-ROM with it, I’ve never been a fan of Windows.
It was a painful experience almost no hardware worked and i was limited to VGA, but it got me interested in free software. I gave up as I had no help with getting things working and lacking a printer or a working Internet connection, having to remember all the details between reboots were impractical.
I didn’t touch Linux again until 2002 when I moved and my next door neighbour was a Gentoo Linux developer and he got me back into Linux and I used Gentoo linux from 2002 till 2008 when I finally gave up on them, wanting a system that just works over what Gentoo offered
Then I used Ubuntu and i’m loving the “it just works” style of it but then unity happened and I dislike unity so I had to find a new Home in the Linux world So I moved to Debian Linux and loving it, even my server is Debian
I mostly Listen to "Free" music from jamendo , Soma.fm covers and Last.fm, I am also learning to play the guitar
I like to paint in oil and draw with charcoal and pastels but don't feel my work is good enough for display only for personal pleasure.
I also love Photography and my photo's can be found all over the place but mostly on Flickr but due to a epic data loss on my desktop machine I've lost 100% of my photo's while I was uploading them so most never made it and I have no back up's but I have learnt from this.. back up, back up, back up
