Security news from LWN

Author: JT Smith

"One question that has been asked of us a few times is why we cover BSD security
reports in LWN, including FreeBSD, NetBSD and OpenBSD. After all, LWN is dedicated to the Linux
community, right? Well, in many ways, our community is the Free Software and Open Source community, to
which the BSD operating systems definitely belong. So reporting on BSD is not totally outside our mandate.
On the other hand, it could be quickly pointed out that other Free Software operating systems exist that we
don't cover."
