Which is a ridiculous statement to make in this situation. That's like patting your security company on the back for not noticing for two years that someone was secretly stealing money out of your bank vault and they only did something after being told by a third-party that there was a problem. But hey they reacted fast two years after the fact, right?

Of course, they may be making more cash from this agreement with Netflix...

Of course they do. Otherwise they wouldn't have demanded the payment.

but that's not really a good thing for anyone.

Sure it is: Comcast which was my whole point. Comcast did what made them more money not what would benefit anyone else. And now that Netflix paid up they'll just do it to others.

And, no, I'm not defending Comcast but it's naive to think they would have done anything other than what gets them more money.

What replacement?


It was my understanding that when they depreciated OpenSSL they just asked software vendors and users to bundle/get the latest version themselves. Which means that a lot of OSX servers _are_ vulnerable while Apple can claim OSX is not.

Nope, they said to use CommonCrypto.
