While I agree that the company should receive a large share of the blame, we should examine why they place so little value on increased security.

Security is a tradeoff, it costs money. In this case the improved security would obviously have been worth the extra developer time required to fix the vulnerability. Many other cases aren't quite so clear and the limited incentives for companies to improve the security of their products are readily apparent. More on this is available at OT: Software & Liability.

[Corion]: ambrus: I think the event loop is not really documented but implicit in X11 or Windows...
[ambrus]: One more obvious possible workaround is to just have the GUI of your program freeze for as long as the HTTP is running;
[Corion]: brb
[ambrus]: or, if Prima supports this, embedding its event loop to an outer main event loop, and running AnyEvent::HTTP in that outer one.
[ambrus]: Corion: I think there's already some form of AnyEvent integration for Prima, according to https://metacpan. org/source/ KARASIK/Prima-1. 49/examples/ socket_anyevent.pl
[ambrus]: Corion: even better, https://metacpan. org/pod/distributi on/Prima/pod/ Prima/faq.pod#How- do-I-use-Prima- with-AnyEvent
[ambrus]: a FAQ question
[ambrus]: ah, apparently that's the POE thing you were talking about
[ambrus]: Ok, but if there's a POE integration, then I again suggest that you consider using IO::Async::Loop:: Poe . I don't know if that will work.
