How would one measure and evaluate the security of a programs code? What metric, if any, would be used?

First, define what threats you care about securing against. Are you protecting against a star 100 light years away suddenly (about 100 years ago lol) going supernova and fucking over absolutely everything? Or is that stupid to protect against? What about stopping someone from logging in by just pressing the Cancel button on the login form? (Windows used to be exactly that shit in the bad old days.) Where do you draw the line?
Until you know where to draw the line, you can't think about evaluating how secure something is.

How many people tried to exploit it and how many succeeded.

>>88035098
i think there are programs that test your code for known vulnerabilities. why not run your code through that?
>>

Never had any of these so can't tell.

What the fuck are you doing in my white country bitch? How did you even get here? Why are you speaking english to me? I am reporting you to the local police station who will deal with you promptly.

Wasn't there a kid who drank Monster and fucking died because of caffeine overdose?
>>
>>88035098
Zoomers don't know that these used to he real. Like 15 years ago nobody gave a shit about Monster so they would send trucks and like these cart things staffed by hot girls, full of Monster to give people free drinks.

They did it every weekend during the summer for a couple years.
>>
>>88037156
if there was he would have had to have been ridiculously caffeine sensitive. the LD50 is 150–200 milligrams per kilogram, or about 1 monster per kg of body weight. even if the kid was only 45kg he would have to drink about 45 monsters to OD on caffeine.

Okay fine, how much Monster can you drink before it becomes hazardous?

She's clearly after that boy's dick. Not wholesome.
Still hot though.
>>
>>88038166
Dunno. The recommended healthy limit is 400 mg of caffeine per day but I've drank twice that and was fine. I had a tolerance of course. Maybe with Monster it's a bit lower because it also has B vitamins.
>>
>>88038166
Depends entirely on your body weight, caffeine tolerance, baseline health, and definition of "hazardous."

if niggers were like that they would be treated with respect by white people
>>
>>88035098
The only metric that matters is "Can it be used to fuck shit up?" and if the answer is yes then you have a security issue.
>>
>>88037156
The kid who died drank 8 cans iirc

>How would one measure and evaluate the security of a programs code?
contract programming's pre- and post-conditions which allows for proving correctness of programs before runtime
strict error handling allows for all exceptions to be caught and for incorrect programs to be literally unusable, thus preventing undetectable exploits

is it free (as in freedom)
do less than 20 people use it?
is it unfriendly to normies (i.e. forcing to RTFM)

OpenBSD checks all of them and is thus the most secure
>>
>>88042048
security by obscurity?
obscurity in *BSD sense by not that many people using it (yes, I know some companies run only *BSD, not enough in my eyes though)?
That is not road to safety. BSDs seem good and with what minimalist stuff I run they seem to be drop in replacement for me so might try out soon but I wouldn't call them much more secure than linux

There's always vulnerabilities, but you're much safer when less people bother breaching you.

OBSD is secure by itself, and is a good user experience, I recommend.
