Well yes, I did say we are still human. It is worth reading through the comment threads for specifics but I had expected people to come up with better examples than OpenSSL and the Ubuntu Lens. I was particularly amused by the person who suggested that it was a failure of maintainers that Heartbleed was detected by professionals at a security firm first. They are the professionals, I would hope they are better at it. Our job in security is to make sure 100% of installations are patched as fast as possible.
