That are loooong 24 hours :)

Perhaps the pfSense developers found one of the NSA backdoors and are doing a last-minute patch   :o

Or...maybe they were 'talked-into' putting one...eh

LOL I confess that thought crossed my mind too. What do you do if a government person comes to your door and asks you to work with them? And they remind you the IRS is their "pit bull".

Being that the pfSense team are quite obviously committed to the principles of open source and all the decency and transparency that implies, I doubt they would destroy their labour of love by turning it into common spyware.

I will call the NSA, however, as I need them to restore a bunch of emails I deleted by mistake ;)

Get real...   The NSA doesn't have storage for all that superfluous crap in your email...  Thats why they can't violate you.

And, if they are anything like me, the response to that would be to check the code for an extra day or two just to be sure before releasing  ;)

I'm just gonna chill.  Its coming.

Just to be clear, and yes..yes..I know this isn't 'on topic'

The NSA has drill down capability on live data. They can pull up your country and type the key word "Bank Manager" and every node that recorded those words will pop up and then they can drill down into your region, your state, your community and eventually to you. Then they can do an association to connect the dots of communications originating from all your registered devices to see who and what you or your device has been talking to, then they can do the same drill down to any of your associates and who they in turn have been communicating to.

They don't need to listen anymore. They cast a wide net, collect all data and AI computers with word association and emotion lists will sift through, highlight, and alert their human counterparts.

They listened to a conversation in Russia, in the forest back in the 80's from outer space...so I don't think we can imagine quite completely what their capabilities are today and why would you anyway...

In any case, to think Pfsense is in anyway 'safe' from them is simply naive.  We're talking about people who created the stuxnet virus to penetrate Nuclear systems and eff them up, ok.
