Yeah, i suspect the NSA to infiltrate BIG projects like openssl as well. But i fear closed source the same. The only difference is, that commercial (!= closed source) software can easliy be affected by a NSL and that open source (which may be commercial as well) software can be read if something is suspected. And you can patch as soon as possible without waiting for a patch day.

I am not sure, if this is a question of nationality, whats your point of view.

What i DO support:
- obey the law
- if you do not like the law, form a group to change it.

But further: "Have an Opinion!".
And this does not need to match the law. When i say "with sexting there is no victim", i do not say that sexting is legal, but i it may mean, that i would support laws, which do not mark every picture of a nude child as illegal, disregarding the way they were created.
I do obey the current law, but if the cause would be big enough for me, i might try to make a petition, engage me in politics or something similiar.

This is what i mean, when is say there is a (subjective) moral point of view and a legal one.

Security is just not black and white.
For opensource you have the chance to see something, with closed source you do not have it.

The only argument could be, that flaws in opensource can be found easier by the bad guys, because of the open source. But i doubt it. At least for this not so obvious ones.

I think stuff like the debian ssl bug was known by the nsa. But not because they read the source, but because they collected A LOT of ssl keys. So its like blackbox testing.

and they cannot work, if you do not know, what is stress to the person and what is not. Questions like name, birth place and so on can be used to test "no stress". To test "stresses him", you need something you know its stressing. Illegal downloading is not. A questions about illegal downloading, which prevents you from getting the job will be quite stressing.

Say "twenty-three-skiddoo" to logout.
