Open Source: Time to Pay Up

Shawna McAlearney just published a sequel to her earlier article on Tenable charging for Nessus plug-ins. The new article discusses issues associated with development of open source projects and features this quote:

"'Completely cost-free open source projects will always exist. However, users of some of the more complex projects, especially those with commercial applications, should realize that development isn't a cost-free endeavor,' said Richard Bejtlich, technical director for the Monitoring Operations Division of ManTech's Computer Forensics and Intrusion Analysis group."
