Re: 1353: "Heartbleed"

If C++ STL containers are being passed back and forth, yes, this becomes very relevant. And my post was only about writing an OpenSSL version in C++. But the point is that passing STL containers between client and server is never ever an option in this case because the protocol specification alread...

Re: 1353: "Heartbleed"

Anyone who picks up a an app using an OpenSSL implementation built with, say, MSVC will have tremendous compatibility issues if the server's OpenSSL is built with, say, GCC or clang.

Re: 1353: "Heartbleed"

Let's take a practical view of how the code would change by switching to STL. The bug is in this code: unsigned char *buffer, *bp; int r; buffer = OPENSSL_malloc(1 + 2 + payload + padding); bp = buffer; *bp++ = TLS1_HB_RESPONSE; s2n(payload, bp); memcpy(bp, pl, payload); RAND_pseudo_bytes(p, paddin...
