Theo said: I will say it here -- if an OpenSSH hole is found that applies to SunSSH, Sun will not be informed. Or maybe that has happened already.

I'm sorry, but that is just plain childish and extremely unprofessional. It's like a kid refusing to do anything his mother tells him to because he doesn't get a cookie.

If Theo wants people to take OpenBSD seriously, he should stop making pointless comments like this one. If you really care about security and open source, you help anyone using your software (if that anyone has done nothing to break the licensing of course). If you let personal grudges stand in the way of seeing the bigger picture (*cough*Amiga), then you have no place in the corporate world-- or in any world, for that matter.

Grow up.
