OpenBSD Okay, this is potentially very big news that really needs all the exposure it can get. OpenBSD's Theo de Raadt has received an email in which it was revealed to him that ten years ago, the FBI paid several open source developers to implement hidden backdoors in OpenBSD's IPSEC stack. De Raadt decided to publish the email for all to see, so that the code in question can be reviewed. Insane stuff.

a bug is when someone makes a mistake in code. a "well-designed door" is a full feature. If you can't catch the get_pwnd_by_fbi() function, then you sure as hell aren't going to catch a bug.


A bug is not purposely hidden, a backdoor is. But you are obviously just trolling what with the 'get_pwnd_by_fbi()'.
