Honest Bender: Over 300,000 servers?!
OH MY GLOB!!!

I used to work in a facility with about that many servers. That's probably less than a percentage of the servers out there. Big deal.


Also - how many are appliances with their own, vendor dictated, patch cycle?  If you're running an appliance with a modified version of OpenSSL at its heart, you can't just download and update OpenSSL on your own, but need the vendor modified version.  You're dependent on the vendor for patches.

FTFA Heartbleed, discovered by a Google engineer, caused widespread panic and a furious round of server patching by companies worldwide.

The press and people who make money pushing FUD panicked.  The rest of us analyzed the risk and took appropriate action where necessary.  Then we went out for a beer.

FTFA two months after Heartbleed, 309,197 servers remain unprotected

Without context this number is absolutely meaningless.  Is it a large banking site?  Yea - that's still pretty stupid.  Is it someone's box sitting in their basement?  Yes - then who gives a fark?

Jim_Callahan: Mambo Bananapatch: tallguywithglasseson: They haven't remember?

One would think that, knowing what is going to happen to anybody who submits an improperly phrased or grammatically incorrect headline, people would be more careful. It doesn't take a whole hell of a lot of extra work.

In fairness, while the grammar used in the headline is unusual, it's not incorrect.  You can diagram it out if you're having trouble, perhaps, but the issue seems to be that some of the commenters don't know how to deal with implied subjects and objects.  Subject-verb agreement doesn't apply as strictly across multiple sentences.


Umm...no.

jst3p: A_bomb37: I'm off work 4 hours early because the IT guys said they were going to have an almost mission critical server up and running yesterday at noon and still nothing

Tell me more about how important your server is...


It controls all the dispatching and equipment provisioning for a major telecom in a 10 city area?

If it's important, it's been patched. If a particular server has not been patched by this point... you probably shouldn't be using the same password there that you use with your financial services.
