Man do I not like this article.
We’re going to look at the binary to make sure it has lots of checks. Meaning a program written in rust will have a poor score because provably unnecessary checks have been removed?
And they look at the presence of complex algorithms that could be susceptible to algorithmic complexity attacks.
That’s another odd thing to say, because it’s simple algorithms like linked lists that are most vulnerable to such attacks.
I’m sure whatever mudge has done is interesting. It’s too bad this article makes it sound like snake oil.
I agree, and I really expected more from The Intercept, although I’m not familiar with this writer.
