Found a wordpress.com security bug recently. In the corporate world, you’d expect that after reporting a sec bug, you can go into the ”wait state” for weeks (or sometimes: months, years) before anyone acts upon it.
So – Just how frakking fast does wordpress.com fix bugs?
- Response time, e-mail number 1: 17 minutes. ”Thanks for the report. We are looking into this.”
- Time to fix: 17 minutes. Second e-mail was sent same god damn minute as the first e-mail. ”There was a bug with … that caused the issue you saw. Should be all fixed now. Thanks again for letting us know!”
This is just awesome. This is the most agile, quickest, fastest response I have ever heard about. wordpress.com, you rock.
