For someone who claims not to know how things work, you've asked a very good question here. It's a lot more nuanced than it seems on the surface, so apologies for the essay I'm about to drop on you - you asked, though, and you happened to hit on a topic I care a lot about. :) So, the stock answer you'll get (particularly from people who are invested emotionally in the open source movement, but also just from anywhere really) is that having access to the source code makes software more secure because it enables bugs to be discovered more easily, and therefore fixed quicker. And that seems to make sense, and may even be true. But it's not automatically true, and I'm not convinced it has been studied rigorously enough to make black and white claims about the real world. One problem with it is that, there aren't actually all that many people \*doing\* this work. The skillset required to audit code for security issues isn't something all developers are good at, and even the ones that are, are busy doing other things, like making the software actually do stuff - and auditing software properly is incredibly time-consuming. Compounding this is the fact that many open source projects you would expect to be well-funded and highly resourced are really not, good examples of this would be OpenSSL (because it's one of the most important security-related software projects in the world and yet is maintained by a relatively small group of not particularly well funded people - and has had a lot of bugs over the years) and Bash - because it's one of the most widely-used open source projects in the world, and yet had a [very critical bug](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shellshock_(software_bug)) in its codebase from 1989 to 2014. 25 years! If the 'many eyes fixes all bugs' theory was as true as people say it is, you wouldn't expect a critical bug like that to simmer for 25 years before someone found it. And this isn't a unique situation, it literally happens all the time, another example just off the top of my head is that the audit company Qualys has been doing some great work on the (very old and popular) Exim mailserver recently and shaking security vulnerabilities out of that thing like it's a magical bug tree - bugs that have been there for years sometimes - it's just that nobody was looking very hard, and when a skilled team (who importantly were paid to go look at it) looked, there they were. Having the source code is an advantage for good guys, for sure. But somebody still has to go look. And common to open source projects, with relatively few exceptions, is that they are run by very busy people who can't afford to pay people to do this, so everyone just assumes that someone else is looking. And maybe if a company like Qualys takes an interest, or someone like me who does this stuff independently has time, someone is. But you don't \*know\* they are, unless you have some process to ensure it, and... hardly anybody does. On the flipside, having the source code does lower the bar for the bad guys, too. You'll often see the argument that the bad guys could just find the bugs anyway, source code or not. And well, yeah, they can, but it's harder (obviously, or it wouldn't matter for the good guys either). In the same way the good guys can be resource starved, it's important to remember that the bad guys have limited resources too. Your average script kiddie team can't afford to hire someone with even my level of RE/exploitation knowledge, and I'm like the D-team in this industry compared to people who are actually good. I know that if I have to find a vulnerability in something for a pen-test or whatever, I'd much rather do it with access to the code... The big argument for open source, I think, is that you don't have to trust a single person (or organisations) word on this if you use it. Microsoft can tell me their product is audited, but I probably don't have access to the report. As a company using an open source product, at least I can go pay Qualys or Cure53 or whoever else to make me a report of what I want to use. But that's not quite the same as 'any piece of open source software is automatically safer than a closed source equivalent automatically'. Someone still has to go do the work. And that work has to be a priority, which is only going to be the case if you're giving them money for it to be a priority (ie thats their core business) or, they happen to just be super passionate about security, which some open source projects definitely are. But on the other hand, I've written exploits for bugs in open source projects that were previously reported and closed as 'wont fix' or 'not a real bug', so...

For someone who claims not to know how things work, you've asked a very good question here. It's a lot more nuanced than it seems on the surface, so apologies for the essay I'm about to drop on you - you asked, though, and you happened to hit on a topic I care a lot about. :) So, the stock answer you'll get (particularly from people who are invested emotionally in the open source movement, but also just from anywhere really) is that having access to the source code makes software more secure because it enables bugs to be discovered more easily, and therefore fixed quicker. And that seems to make sense, and may even be true. But it's not automatically true, and I'm not convinced it has been studied rigorously enough to make black and white claims about the real world. One problem with it is that, there aren't actually all that many people \*doing\* this work. The skillset required to audit code for security issues isn't something all developers are good at, and even the ones that are, are busy doing other things, like making the software actually do stuff - and auditing software properly is incredibly time-consuming. Compounding this is the fact that many open source projects you would expect to be well-funded and highly resourced are really not, good examples of this would be OpenSSL (because it's one of the most important security-related software projects in the world and yet is maintained by a relatively small group of not particularly well funded people - and has had a lot of bugs over the years) and Bash - because it's one of the most widely-used open source projects in the world, and yet had a [very critical bug](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shellshock_(software_bug)) in its codebase from 1989 to 2014. 25 years! If the 'many eyes fixes all bugs' theory was as true as people say it is, you wouldn't expect a critical bug like that to simmer for 25 years before someone found it. And this isn't a unique situation, it literally happens all the time, another example just off the top of my head is that the audit company Qualys has been doing some great work on the (very old and popular) Exim mailserver recently and shaking security vulnerabilities out of that thing like it's a magical bug tree - bugs that have been there for years sometimes - it's just that nobody was looking very hard, and when a skilled team (who importantly were paid to go look at it) looked, there they were. Having the source code is an advantage for good guys, for sure. But somebody still has to go look. And common to open source projects, with relatively few exceptions, is that they are run by very busy people who can't afford to pay people to do this, so everyone just assumes that someone else is looking. And maybe if a company like Qualys takes an interest, or someone like me who does this stuff independently has time, someone is. But you don't \*know\* they are, unless you have some process to ensure it, and... hardly anybody does. On the flipside, having the source code does lower the bar for the bad guys, too. You'll often see the argument that the bad guys could just find the bugs anyway, source code or not. And well, yeah, they can, but it's harder (obviously, or it wouldn't matter for the good guys either). In the same way the good guys can be resource starved, it's important to remember that the bad guys have limited resources too. Your average script kiddie team can't afford to hire someone with even my level of RE/exploitation knowledge, and I'm like the D-team in this industry compared to people who are actually good. I know that if I have to find a vulnerability in something for a pen-test or whatever, I'd much rather do it with access to the code... The big argument for open source, I think, is that you don't have to trust a single person (or organisations) word on this if you use it. Microsoft can tell me their product is audited, but I probably don't have access to the report. As a company using an open source product, at least I can go pay Qualys or Cure53 or whoever else to make me a report of what I want to use. But that's not quite the same as 'any piece of open source software is automatically safer than a closed source equivalent automatically'. Someone still has to go do the work. And that work has to be a priority, which is only going to be the case if you're giving them money for it to be a priority (ie thats their core business) or, they happen to just be super passionate about security, which some open source projects definitely are.

@MARKIEEEE @Bugsnax3 @Yuri_Belka @Puertorock77_ First time on both…. I don’t think you could play PS3 games on a PS4 & X360 games didn’t work on XOne for at least 3 years until Microsoft started adding backwards compatibility across the gaming generations with all their consoles including Xbox OG digital/disk playing on X360

For someone who claims not to know how things work, you've asked a very good question here. It's a lot more nuanced than it seems on the surface, so apologies for the essay I'm about to drop on you - you asked, though, and you happened to hit on a topic I care a lot about. :) So, the stock answer you'll get (particularly from people who are invested emotionally in the open source movement, but also just from anywhere really) is that having access to the source code makes software more secure because it enables bugs to be discovered more easily, and therefore fixed quicker. And that seems to make sense, and may even be true. But it's not automatically true, and I'm not convinced it has been studied rigorously enough to make black and white claims about the real world. One problem with it is that, there aren't actually all that many people \*doing\* this work. The skillset required to audit code for security issues isn't something all developers are good at, and even the ones that are, are busy doing other things, like making the software actually do stuff - and auditing software properly is incredibly time-consuming. Compounding this is the fact that many open source projects you would expect to be well-funded and highly resourced are really not, good examples of this would be OpenSSL (because it's one of the most important security-related software projects in the world and yet is maintained by a relatively small group of not particularly well funded people - and has had a lot of bugs over the years) and Bash - because it's one of the most widely-used open source projects in the world, and yet had a [very critical bug](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shellshock_(software_bug)) in its codebase from 1989 to 2014. 25 years! If the 'many eyes fixes all bugs' theory was as true as people say it is, you wouldn't expect a critical bug like that to simmer for 25 years before someone found it. And this isn't a unique situation, it literally happens all the time, another example just off the top of my head is that the audit company Qualys has been doing some great work on the (very old and popular) Exim mailserver recently and shaking security vulnerabilities out of that thing like it's a magical bug tree - bugs that have been there for years sometimes - it's just that nobody was looking very hard, and when a skilled team (who importantly were paid to go look at it) looked, there they were. Having the source code is an advantage for good guys, for sure. But somebody still has to go look. And common to open source projects, with relatively few exceptions, is that they are run by very busy people who can't afford to pay people to do this, so everyone just assumes that someone else is looking. And maybe if a company like Qualys takes an interest, or someone like me who does this stuff independently has time, someone is. But you don't \*know\* they are, unless you have some process to ensure it, and... hardly anybody does. On the flipside, having the source code does lower the bar for the bad guys, too. You'll often see the argument that the bad guys could just find the bugs anyway, source code or not. And well, yeah, they can, but it's harder (obviously, or it wouldn't matter for the good guys either). In the same way the good guys can be resource starved, it's important to remember that the bad guys have limited resources too. Your average script kiddie team can't afford to hire someone with even my level of RE/exploitation knowledge, and I'm like the D-team in this industry compared to people who are actually good. I know that if I have to find a vulnerability in something for a pen-test or whatever, I'd much rather do it with access to the code... The big argument for open source, I think, is that you don't have to trust a single person (or organisations) word on this if you use it. Microsoft can tell me their product is audited, but I probably don't have access to the report. As a company using an open source product, at least I can go pay Qualys or Cure53 or whoever else to make me a report of what I want to use. But that's not quite the same as 'any piece of open source software is automatically safer than a closed source equivalent automatically'. Someone still has to go do the work. And that work has to be a priority, which is only going to be the case if you're giving them money for it to be a priority (ie thats their core business) or, they happen to just be super passionate about security, which some open source projects definitely are. But on the other hand, I've written exploits for bugs in open source projects that were previously reported and closed as 'wont fix' or 'not a real bug', so...
