Chef places the pot back on the stove and flails manically at the door, gesturing for me to leave. This is going to be a good job.

Motherfucker, I'm not done yet. Snort some Xanax and fuck off.

This thread had zero content when I replied. Write your shit in notepad first and eat a bag of dicks.

A pot of boiled something is removed from the element and thrusted in my direction. I dance aside to avoid catching a faceful of hot broth, sweep up a handtowel to protect my hands and take the pot. The next step is unclear. "PUT IT!" Chef demands. Beat. "PUT IT RIGHT NOW."

There are limited options available. Do I:

A) Place the pot on the bench beside the stove. Chef is closer to here, so it seems unlikely that he would delegate this placement to me.
B) Place the pot on the mobile tray behind me. We've just cleared this surface, intending to wheel it into a catered function upstairs in five minutes.
"PUT IT SONOFABITCH."
C) Place the pot on the bench on the opposite side of the room. This bench is clear and seems a sensible place for this to go.
D) Take the pot and run.

C. "NO. PUT IT."
B "GAAAH PUT IT."
A "GIVE IT."

Hopefully now we're going to get people with appropriate knowledge looking at the dependencies for their software and helping to improve those building blocks of the web to help themselves.

Yeah, that's pretty much the issue. And not in a "yeah, that's a nice simplification for a comic". That's how it works.

As (something of) a developer, I think Heartbleed is for our sins. Covered in more detail here, but we built a large part of the internet's security on an open source project with one full time employee and a very small band of other contributors. The offending functionality was pushed on New Year's Eve, where instead of partying hard this one dude was trying to improve OpenSSL.

Anyone who donates more than 20k to OpenSSL development gets their logo featured here: http://www.openssl.org/support/donations.html

There are no logos. Nobody is looking after this little team that two thirds of the web rely on.

Yeah, but I mean it already existed in the original contribution of the TLS/DTLS heartbeat functionality, rather than in the original implementation of the project.

Interesting that you can be charged for murder if the police shoot one of your victims.

It may be paranoia, by when I read about things like this, I have to wonder if the flaw was in fact deliberately designed.

If it was, they got in early, it looks like the bug existed from the start: https://github.com/openssl/openssl/commit/4817504d069b4c5082161b02a22116ad75f822b1

Will be interesting as we think through the implications of this to figure out how people will resolve issues with embedded systems that rely on openssl.

I just found out that my PSU bill for 5 credits is more than $2k.

I guess I'm selling my car.
Gah, sorry to hear that, Nigel.

This effort is being restarted at joshbrodie.co.nz, which is a blog hosted by github and formatted by jekyll, allowing me to add basic text documents to this repository and have them structured according to rules I set about the blog layout.
