I still can't stop wondering why so many websites are still reluctant to share information with their users and visitors when it comes to the subject of the effect that the Heartbleed vulnerability has had on the sites since it was exposed since this is something that affects everyone but was hardly their fault. I love the approach taken by CloudFare in including freelancers to help fix the problem though even they should have so much earlier and save all those wasted man hours.

This is just another example of the havoc that Heartbleed has left in its wake since the security vulnerability was discovered. This is just one of the few stories that have seen the light of day and there are many other stories that are a lot more serious but which you will probably never to hear about. Maybe it is because the site owners have not succeeded in solving the problem and fixing the gaps on their end or it may be because they don't want to alarm their users and visitors but either way, they are very unlikely to give you this kind of information.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
