I’ve been waiting for this (without knowing): Chrome Plans to Mark All ‘HTTP’ Traffic as Insecure from 2015 I hope it will increase the pressure on websites to turn to SSL that so far are still ignoring the issue. A few coming to my mind: BSR Shop — no SSL at all Finya — no […]

(German) Zu “Ran an die Buletten” von Elisabeth Raether, ZEITmagazin #33, 17. Juli 2014 2014-07-22 No Comments

While digging in the latest code of htop in hunt of a resizing bug I came across calls to functions backtrace(3) and backtrace_symbols_fd(3), which I didn’t know about before. htop installs a custom segfault handler which tries to shut down curses and print a stacktrace using the backtrace(3) function. Example output looks like this: htop […]
