Reducing security risks from open source software

Updated We promised yesterday that we'd post the URLs we discovered on the World Wide Web that seem to give benchmarks for Intel's Coppermine and AMD's K7 chips. The data is at Stanford University but quite frankly we find it quite bewildering. However, a kindly reader has pointed us to this Ars Technica article which is helpful. The benchmarks are SPEC benchmarks, he said. The data is here for the K7, and here for Coppermine. So there we have it. How come the studes got hold of Coppermine and K7s? The answer, according to another, rather rude reader, is that these are simulations. By the way, we've still got that $2,000 waiting for anyone who can come up with an AMD K7. We understand that students are generally hard up. So come on, if a Stanford student has a K7, give us one and we'll give you that $2,000. ®
