Comment: Depends on the intention (Score 1) 550

by vchoy (#41103139) Attached to: Should Developers Be Sued For Security Holes?

If the security hole introduced intentionally with malice, or nothing is done about a known security bug, then getting sued maybe on the cards...
It depends on the impact the security hole...eg privacy or information breach.

If the security hole was introduced without malice or fixed in time, or does not have major impact (ie affects only test data, or performance...), then you're unlikely to have a case for litigation.

SOE Also Making a New Star Wars MMOG? 49

Posted by Soulskill
from the empire-strikes-back dept.
Hand Solo writes 'Ten Ton Hammer has an inside scoop on SOE making a new browser-based MMOG based on Star Wars. Rumor is that it will be run on the Free Realms platform. This is generating a lot of buzz around the net. Quoting: 'Former and current Star Wars Galaxies players can still remember the sting of the 'New Game Experience' that changed the face of that game for everyone. SOE has repeatedly said that they have learned from their mistakes, and plan to not repeat them. If SOE isn't expressly targeting the hardcore segment this time around, they (unlike BioWare) won't have quite the same initial level of expectations to deal with. Don't let us give you the impression that SOE plans to take on BioWare, and their highly anticipated MMOG debut, The Old Republic, particularly given the engine the game is rumored to be based on. More plausible is that it will be based off the Clone Wars CGI animated film, offering a more stylized approach to the universe. "

A language that doesn't affect the way you think about programming is not worth knowing.
