"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."
