Submission + - OpenBSD Team Cleaning Up OpenSSL

Iarwain Ben-adar writes: The OpenBSD has started a cleanup of their in-tree OpenSSL library. Improvements include removing "exploit mitigation countermeasures", fixing bugs, removal of questionable entropy additions, and many more. If you support the effort of these guys who are responsible for the venerable OpenSSH library, consider a donation to the OpenBSD Foundation. Maybe someday we'll see a "portable" version of this new OpenSSL fork. Or not.
