The Internet Is Broken, and Shellshock Is Just the Start of Our Woes | WIRED | Nerd Vittles Daily Dump | Scoop.it
Shellshock is one of the oldest known bugs in history. But its story is not that usual. Early this year, security researchers discovered another bug, called Heartbleed, that has languished in open source software for years.

No. 6,326,978, has been declared unpatentable by the US Patent and Trademark Office in response to a challenge (called an Inter Partes Review, or IPR) filed by Rackspace. This continues our streak of challenging, and winning, against patent trolls.
