Unless the language is portable to all platforms it's useless for a portable library. And none of those "safe" langauges are portable as C.
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?
Because that would require huge amounts of capital expenditure that eats into profits.
Or simply requires taking control of some servers.
What about it? If you want a Go implementation, then go do it.
They are not using Go because they want portable code that can run on all the hardware platforms they support. Go does not support all of those platforms.
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.
But how does that get them more money?
The point is that Slashdot is not his blog.
Yeah, I made a typo when typing on my phone keyboard.
At least this one didn't include whining about Burning Man in it. That's a narked improvement.
Nope, that's why it's open source.
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.
