Amsterdam Animation 1600-1700

Animation by the Stadsarchief Amsterdam (City Archive Amsterdam).
It clearly shows that a new outer city wall and canal are built before the old city wall, now an inner wall, is torn down.

The AppleTree site is gone.
It had 44 million profiles when I wrote about back in 2011.

Heartbleed testing illegal
#Heartbleed #web #security #law #facepalm
You tested for the Heartbleed defect on another site than your own?  You are a cybercriminal!

"Both the US Computer Fraud and Abuse Act and its UK equivalent the Computer Misuse Act make it an offence to test the security of third-party websites without permission."
Oops.

Solicitor Dai Davis kicks in the Open Door of the Day: "It's not in the spirit of the law but the Computer Misuse Act is badly written."

OpenBSD founder: OpenSSL team irresponsible
#UNIX #OpenBSD #OpenSSL #HeartBlead #malloc

If you're a programmer, you'll understand that his comment is not bashing the one programmer who made a mistake all programmers make, but criticising the OpenSSL team decision to not use libraries that expose such mistakes.

Theo de Raadt:
"So years ago we added exploit mitigations counter measures to libc
malloc and mmap, so that a variety of bugs can be exposed.  Such
memory accesses will cause an immediate crash, or even a core dump, then the bug can be analyed, and fixed forever.

Some other debugging toolkits get them too.  To a large extent these
come with almost no performance cost.

But around that time OpenSSL adds a wrapper around malloc & free so that the library will cache memory on it's own, and not free it to the protective malloc.

You can find the comment in their sources ...

#ifndef OPENSSL_NO_BUF_FREELISTS
 /* On some platforms, malloc() performance is bad enough that you can't just

OH, because SOME platforms have slow performance, it means even if you build protective technology into malloc() and free(), it will be
ineffective.  On ALL PLATFORMS, because that option is the default,
and Ted's tests show you can't turn it off because they haven't tested without it in ages.

So then a bug shows up which leaks the content of memory mishandled by that layer.  If the memoory had been properly returned via free, it would likely have been handed to munmap, and triggered a daemon crash instead of leaking your keys.

OpenSSL is not developed by a responsible team."
