    As an OpenBSD user I find it confusing that they didn't patch OpenSSL in the final release. One will have to compile base system in order to fix this issue, or to use OpenBSD-current :/

        It isn't necessary to compile the base system, a patch for -release is already on www.openbsd.org/errata55.html and it only requires rebuilding libssl (and FTP).

        Updating to -stable would require rebuilding the base system however (but would also fix the issue).

          I don't think the OpenBSD devs have ported the Radeon DRM from the FreeBSD project. OpenBSD had the stack committed several weeks in advance of the FreeBSD guys.

            That's why OpenBSD sucks along with the rest of BSD. They make such a big noise about heartbleed while at the same time openly expose their users to the very same bug.

            I recommend you switch to Linux, it's much more secure, secure updates are applied in a second and it's much more user friendly. OpenBSD has at least few security holes willingly planted by the developers for the NSA and CIA to use.

              Correct. Michael seems to make up crap all too often.

                LOL. Batshit crazy go back to your cave.

                  Mind showing us how to do it? Links, Steps etc.? Because I hear OpenBSD doesn't allow you to compile individual components. Only either the whole kernel or userland.

                  No, they did.

                  They do not have the man power nor the tenacity to port it straight from Linux.

                    Looks with you're just pissed that OpenBSD's "new" radeon is old and outdated from Linux 3.8.

                    In Linux today, we use radeon from Linux 3.15. OpenBSD is years behind Linux in everything.

                      He already did. He provided a link. Go there and it has a list of security with links with how to address them. Here's a short snippet:

                      Code:
                      Apply patch using:
                      
                          signify -Vep /etc/signify/openbsd-55-base.pub -x 005_openssl.patch.sig \
                              -m - | (cd /usr/src && patch -p0)
                      
                      Then build and install libssl
                      
                          cd /usr/src/lib/libssl/ssl
                          make obj
                          make
                          make install
                      He also went on to explain that you only need to rebuild your whole system if you go with -stable.

                      Try actually reading the post next time. This particular post was rather short too so there's really no excuse.

                        OpenBSD and Linux are diferent projects with not exactly the same focus, both are stable and secure, but OpenBSD developers are more strict with the code , so naturally new features will come later on OpenBSD, but it have less bugs and secure holes, do some research and you will see.
