Wow! What an amazing turnout we had for our 4th annual survey: 3,353 participants this year brings us to over 11,000 participants in the four years we’ve run this survey. I would like to extend a BIG THANK YOU to all who participated! The survey started with a bang and was quickly followed by a shock wave. Just a week after our 2014 survey kicked off this year, the tech world was thrown off by the announcement of the Open SSL bug dubbed Heartbleed.
Now that Heartbleed has become the new measuring stick for vulnerability disclosures, I have had several people ask me, “Is this OpenId/Oauth thing the next Heartbleed?” The long answer, as Run DMC once said, is “It’s Tricky, Tricky, Tricky, Tricky”. The TL/DR (too long/didn’t read) answer is “No”.
