Comment Using source from OpenSSH ... (Score 2, Interesting) 285

In which case they will have to release the code that corresponds to binaries - would be useful for checking that there is not some little tweaks to help the NSA -- but if they have already put those into the system DLLs (eg for encryption) we would not really know. Maybe I am too cynical but I am very suspicious of what they did to skype.

To make this work you take your open source Firefox and download the Adobe Content Decryption Module (CDM) - a closed source ''black box''. Who knows what is in there, maybe Adobe took some dollars from the NSA and put some spyware in there -- you can't tell because the channel to download the video is encrypted. Maybe they have also taken some rubles and inserted some code from the FSB (KGB successor) and maybe from elsewhere ?

Who knows ? I don't -- it is closed source.
