Copy and Paste Security Bugs?? The *BSD case…
So, it’s time to another blog entry, another idiot/dumb post…
And for sure DragonFlyBSD and TrustedBSD* are also affected for this issue… why?
The bug occur because bsd developers does not know how integer convertion is done? Or just because you have copy and paste the bug from another BSD to yours? It’s always a problem when you copy code from another location. How secure is that code? What is the historical security problems it has? Let’s audit it!
Congratulations to you, OpenBSD guys, who simply don’t support things you don’t audit… why someone wanna use firewire? hehehe . Yeah! Is pretty easy talk about the problems, but, how I can help to solve it? I really dunno… In my mind, you need to understand the code you are copying, but, for god, please, copy it
