Hi everyone,

I'm looking for case studies on security and free software, in
particular the differences in how the world can respond to the discovery
of important vulnerabilities/exploits on free software vs. proprietary

Any case studies on how the world dealt to react quickly and update
systems in reponse to Heartbleed for instance?

How do support providers react, e.g. Red Hat, Oracle?

Feel free to forward this message to anyone who might have interesting
resources on this subject.


PS: please keep me in To: if you respond
