Hi Jerry,


Nobody who works on a network program can says that his program doesn’t have any security bug. Even program like SSH had some security problem at his start and they always found (very rarely) some little problem.

NeL is quite a young project and it’s possible that there’s some security problem.

But NeL is Free Software that it means that anybody can read the code, look at for the problem and fix it without asking Nevrax.

I just read about a security hole in unreal’s game engine that lets hackers take over machines. This is not the medium-level security problem found before. It’s bad because a lot of games license their engine. Here’s a link to the story:

I don’t have any more details. Just thought I’d raise the issue so somebody can look into it and say “NeL doesn’t have that problem”.
