Turned down your talk submission on "secret stuff I do with MI5", did they?
Given how much you can't stand it when anyone but you gets some
attention for infosec stuff, Dan's patch must have triggered a full,
rolling on the floor, kicking, crying and screaming until you can't
n3td3v is just mad he can't match the scope of Dan's announcement, and
who they had to get onboard for the coordinated release:
"I'm pretty proud of what we accomplished here. We got Windows. We got Cisco
IOS. We got Nominum. We got BIND 9, and when we couldn't get BIND 8, we got
Yahoo, the biggest BIND 8 deployment we knew of, to publicly commit to
abandoning it entirely."
The rest is quite an informative read too....
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
