Re: Is that an accusation?

... Strelka's winboard parser borrows heavily from Beowulf. ;-) Does "borrows heavily" mean copied? It is very clear to me that Beowulf's I/O was used as the start for Strelka (there is no question whatsoever in my mind). If you ask Brian Hoffman to examine Beowulf's parser.c and compare it with St...

Re: Strelka will be open-source?

And yet it's a goose and not a duck. How do you know it's a goose? It could also be a specially cultured Connemara Highland duck! :wink: In this case I have done the dissection (read: 'they sent me the source code'). There may be a duck feather stuck to it here and there, but with this bird we can ...

I believe it was Dr. Hyatt who said (paraphrasing here...):

Re: Strelka will be open-source?

The actual crisis of the programmer Yuri seems to be caused by a widely spread lack of respect for his own work and creativity. Are you aware that "Yuri Osipov" is only a pseudonym, as he acknowledges in the interview? His work and creativity have been estimated "D-" by D.Corbit: http://www.talkche...

Re: Symbolic: Status Report 2007.05.11

Is your estimate on the current threat based on probability (e.g. Bayesian model of some kind) or is it purely heuristic?

Re: My review of Strelka Code

I have examined the code and Strelka is not a clone. There is a 1 MB data table called 'material' inside Strelka, which is what I thought was some encrypted binary.

It's ironic that I complained about the 'primitive' Winboard parser.
Strelka's winboard parser borrows heavily from Beowulf.

Re: My review of Strelka Code

Well, that settles it then. Strelka is not a clone. I guess that IdaPro 5.1 lost its place and listed a huge block of code as data. The excellence of play would explain why Rybka and Strelka often have the same analysis. The identical bug(s) found in both programs could be explained in two ways: 1. ...

Re: Strelka again

I agreed to take a look.

I guess I am going to have to apologize. Since he is willing to take this step, it seems likely that we jumped the gun this time.

Re: To put everything into place with Strelka

The talk is over. That's up to you. Until then Strelka is over too. A photo of someone pointing at a laptop does not cut it. If you know that Strelka is an original work (I hope so too) then there are some questions that need answered by some supporting evidence. You can see many programmers here w...
