Russia Prepares For Internet War Over Malaysian Jet

Aethedor Re:Wrong priority! (503 comments)

You expect and want the US to stick it's nose into every corner of the world?

It already has been doing that for the last decades.

Don't we have a UN? Can't Europe look after itself?

I'm not say that *only* the US president should be doing something. EVERY world leader should be doing something. If you think that this is only a local incident, you don't understand the situation there and what just has happend.

Russia Prepares For Internet War Over Malaysian Jet

Omg, how brainwashed one can be. The US is one big lie itself.

Russia Prepares For Internet War Over Malaysian Jet

Aethedor Wrong priority! (503 comments)

... the priority is investigating whether U.S. citizens were involved.

Seriously, is that really what matters now? What an arrogant *****. What really matters is who did it and why. What's the risk for other planes. If it were the rebels, how did they get their hands on such advanced weaponry. 298 people died. Who they were is something to find out by the airliner company. A president, and specially one from the USA, should really have other things to worry about.

Ask Slashdot: Choosing a Web Language That's Long-Lived, and Not Too Buzzy?

Aethedor Re:PHP with Banshee framework (536 comments)

Don't focus on a language only. Also look at a good framework. My advice is the Banshee PHP framework. It mainly focuses on security, which is the only important thing these days. I know this will be seen as spam, but do yourself a favor and just take a look at it for 15 minutes.

Perl Is Undead

Aethedor It should be dead (283 comments)

Whatever it is now, it should be dead. For the simple reason that Perl allows this kind of code:

$_='while(read+STDIN,$_,2048){$a=29;$b=73;$c=142;$t=255;@t=map{$_%16or$t^=$c^=( $m=(11,10,116,100,11,122,20,100)[$_/16%8])$t^=(72,@z=(64,72,$a^=12*($_%16 -2?0:$m&17)),$b^=$_%64?12:0,@z)[$_%8]}(16..271);if((@a=unx"C*",$_)[20]&48){$h =5;$_=unxb24,join"",@b=map{xB8,unxb8,chr($_^$a[--$h+84])}@ARGV;s/...$/1$&/;$ d=unxV,xb25,$_;$e=256|(ord$b[4])

PHK: HTTP 2.0 Should Be Scrapped

Aethedor Re:Tunnelling (220 comments)

Yeah, tell that to the firewall administrator who thinks that opening an extra port is far more insecure than to tunnel that extra connection via HTTP. The IT world is defined by a mass amount of incompetent administrators and developers.

PHK: HTTP 2.0 Should Be Scrapped

Aethedor SPDY doesn't solve the real issues (220 comments)

The biggest problem with SPDY is that it's a protocol by Google, for Google. Unless you are doing the same as Google, you won't benefit from it. In my free time, I'm writing an open source webserver and by doing so, I've encountered several bad things in the HTTP and CGI standard. Things can be made really more easy and thus faster if we, for example, agree to let go of this rediculous pathinfo, agree that requests within the same connection are always for the same host and make the CGI headers work better with HTTP.

You want things to be faster? Start by making things more simple. Just take a look at all the modules for Apache. The amount of crap many web developers want to put into their website can't be fixed by a new HTTP protocol.

We don't need HTTP/2.0. HTTP/1.3 with some things removed, fixed or at least have some vague things be specified more clearly, would be more than enough for 95% of all the websites.

Emory University SCCM Server Accidentally Reformats All Computers Campus-wide

Aethedor Re: Sounds like IT incompetence (564 comments)

Your story isn't about you messing up. It's about your boss failing hard at proper risk management. He's the one who should be fired for allowing a process in the company in which one person could do so much damage. Unfortunately, this happens still too often. Companies in which the mistake of one single person, the error of one single machine or the failure of one single process starts a chain reaction which causes heavy damage. Just take a look a look at the company you work for. I'm sure everybody can point out a machine or a person that will cause serious problems if that machine or person is not available for a certain amount of time.

OpenBSD Team Cleaning Up OpenSSL

Aethedor PolarSSL (304 comments)

Maybe it's time to realize that OpenSSL has become obsolute. For me it's totally unacceptable that even now the documentation is [STILL INCOMPLETE]. Instead of wasting time with cleaning up a pile of dirt, use that time to start supporting PolarSSL in all your applications. Its code is clean and it is well documented. Once you give PolarSSL a try, I'm sure you will wonder why the hell you were using OpenSSL all that time.

Wasn't that the guy of the lamest vendor response in 2007? A little less harsh on your comment would be appropriate, mr. Theo.

Not Just Apple: GnuTLS Bug Means Security Flaw For Major Linux Distros

Aethedor Re:Real question (144 comments)

Not GnuTLS, but PolarSSL. Reason for moving away from OpenSSL is because of it's horrible documentation. Or, better said, the lack of any documentation. Tried to implement SNI support in my open source web server (Hiawatha http://www.hiawatha-webserver....), but there was no proper documentation or example code available. With PolarSSL, it was done within a day. All other SSL features were implemented in a more cleaner way. No ugly callback stuff. Even with the OpenSSL 1.0.0 release some time ago their documentation was still incomplete. I seriously don't now how to take a piece of software (specially libraries) serious with proper and complete documentation. I believe proper documentation and support is even more essential to software than code quality.

Theo De Raadt Says FreeBSD Is Just Catching Up On Security

Aethedor Re:Bug free software (280 comments)

I do know 'anythin' about OpenBSD. And yes, I was already aware of the things in the online presentation. But OpenBSD is not unique on this matter. Other OSes offer the same functionality. OpenBSD is quite unique on his strong focus on writing correct code. But that alone is not enough for being a 'secure OS'. OpenBSD has security features that other OSes lack, but the same counts for any other OS. If you call OpenBSD secure just because they focus on writing correct code, then you're missing the point about what good security is all about.
