Subject Re: Recent Heartbleed OpenSSL bug may affect HTTPS Subversion servers

Are you sure about that? From my understanding it is necessary that
data passes OpenSSL's memory to get retrieved because it implements
it's own malloc. I had the feeling that in case of heartbleed only
sending passwords over http would have been the "more secure" way
because in that case they wouldn't have been retrievable because they
never passed memory allocated using OPENSSL_malloc() at all.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
