OpenSSL after Heartbleed | Linux.com | The source for Linux information

Despite being a library that most people outside of the technology industry have never heard of, the Heartbleed bug in OpenSSL caught the attention of the mainstream press when it was uncovered in April 2014 because so many websites were vulnerable to theft of sensitive server and user data. At LinuxCon Europe, Rich Salz and Tim Hudson from the OpenSSL team did a deep dive into what happened with Heartbleed and the steps the OpenSSL team are taking to improve the project.

So, CM is dead, but like with most things in the open source world, things will be forked, especially if there’s a disagreement between the two. In this case, rather than compete, it’s a desire to keep the project going.

Asok: No, and you’re a racist.

Boss: Here’s what he said on social media.

Returning back to running after a period of being unable to breathe properly due to a cough. Still lingering slightly, but doesn’t now wake me up at 1am for a coughing fit.

Averaged 5:52 min/km so still within my 6min mark. Running with a Spotify Running list at 160bpm. Finding that’s letting me go slow, but not burn out too quickly.
