Go to hell.
This whole thing has been completely blown out of proportion, and I'm
sick of the FUD and all the other associated bullshit.
As has already been revealed by people WHO WERE THERE who are willing
to give actual details: The NSA and the FBI were using OpenBSD code
to experiment with whether backdoors could be created. The did not
submit their resultant code, and had no intention of doing so. It was
an experiment, which is part of what open source is all about.
You, Greg attention-whore Perry, and the mass-media all need to go back
to snapping paparazzi photos of celebrities.
Here, I formally double DES' bounty. If anyone can find any FBI
inserted backdoors in such a way as to meet DES' criteria, I'll pay
out the same as whatever he pays out.
