Everyone at the NSA should be drawn and quartered for sitting on Heartbleed.
It’s one thing to surreptitiously spy on communications via quasi-legal channels. I’m not a fan, but it’s par for the course for America. But to sit on a known exploit that compromises the personal and financial well-being of everyone who uses the Internet and myriad companies and financial institutions is so unbelievably irresponsible it defies logic.
Furthermore, if it’s not criminal to leverage such an exploit, it certainly should be.
The agency found the Heartbleed glitch shortly after its introduction, according to one of the people familiar with the matter, and it became a basic part of the agency’s toolkit for stealing account passwords and other common tasks.
Disgusting, irresponsible, criminal behaviour.
The bottom line is, you don’t beat an idea by beating a person. You beat an idea by beating an idea.
Damn. Just found out Frankie Knuckles passed away. 59. Complications from diabetes. Stay healthy folks. And keep dancing.

Brendan Eich Steps Down as Mozilla CEO
Well, I’m kind of surprised that this happened.
I thought Mozilla did a fine job of addressing the issue and explaining how they govern themselves as an organization. This seems a little dramatic unless Eich really was pushing for reform within Mozilla.
It did seem odd to promote him to head cheerleader, but I expected more conviction with their selection.
The internet sure is a vengeful beast.
