Just 4 remember

year 2003 ...

"At lines 467-469 in crypto/rand/md_rand.c is an interesting
thing:

#ifndef PURIFY
MD_Update(&m,buf,j); /* purify complains */
#endif

That is the code that causes the problem (I just verified
it with Valgrind). Does it have any bad side affects to
always skip that code? Since both Purify and Valgrind is
unhappy with that function call, something must be wrong
with it.
"

LOL.
is perfect Valgrind ?

Este texto empieza exactamente con la respuesta al problema de hace unos meses de Debian (http://www.debian.org/security/2008/dsa-1571):

"That is the code that causes the problem ..."

Jeje, será que ya sabia lo que iba a ocasionar?

PD: una mala premisa.
