Over at Servicevirtualization.com, Bob Beck (beck@) was interviewed for a piece called Dead Code Walking: What Companies Can Do to Mitigate Old, Bad Code about the Heartbleed bug and the subsequent LibreSSL fork. A favorite quote:
ServiceVirtualization: What can organizations do to ensure they are building applications using high-quality, open-source components?
Beck: This is not an open source problem. Itís a problem with any codebase you incorporate or reuse. Examine where they come from, have competent developers look at what they are bringing in, and know what the motivations of the organization is that is developing them. OpenBSD can stand well on its own track record. We are security-focused developers.
