If DARPA says that they withdraw funding of a "security fest" aka. OpenBSD hackathon "due to world events and the evolving threat posed by increasingly capable nation-states" it makes one wonder how long we'll have to wait for all Open Source software and technologies to be declared "weapons of mass destruction."



The story unfolds on the OpenBSD Journal.

Ignore DARPA's comment
Dont take it seriously. Its probably due to some healthy beauracratic officer not knowing what else to say to safeguard his desk job.
