srobert (4099) writes "An article at ars-technica details that following stories of NSA leaks, FreeBSD developers will not rely solely on Intel's or Via's chip-based random number generators for /dev/random values. The values will first be seeded through another randomization algorithm known as "Yarrow". The changes are effective with the upcoming FreeBSD 10.0 (for which the first of three planned release candidates became available last week)."
