Bruce Schneier discusses the human side of Heartbleed, the virus that attacked security software recently and sent the world’s computer users hastening to remove it. Will it happen again?

Schneier’s post is a helpful account of what occurs when a virus strikes, and how it’s combatted. (Heartbleed was especially challenging in that regard.)
