[Chat] Security and open source software

Here is an article written by Robert Dewar, titled as ``Open Source Software for High Reliability Applications: Is it safe?.''

The author argued the benefit of making the software open sourced. He believed that, by doing so, the software could be safer and we could avoid using software containing bugs which no one can discover because the source code is kept privately.

Besides, the comment left by the reader jogafe also gave me some new opinions.
