"Programmer Robin Seggelmann says he wrote the code for 
the part of OpenSSL that led to Heartbleed. But it was an accident. 
He submitted the code to the OpenSSL project and other members 
reviewed it. Seggelmann later added another piece of code for a 
new feature, which the members then added. It was this added 
feature that introduced the bug."

"It would be better if more people helped improving it," Seggelmann 
told Mashable via email. "It doesn’t really matter if companies 
benefitting from it provided some support, or if people do it in 
their spare time. However, if everybody just keeps using it and 
thinks somebody else will eventually take care of it, it won’t work. 
The more people look at it, the less likely errors like this occur."
