Invest in your own security first

Iboss Cybersecurity raised $35 million from Goldman Sachs' Private Capital Investing group, the article tells us.

At the same time Goldman Sachs has deployed an SSH/SFTP server for their corporate operations, and has built it on the outdated version of the open-source SSH server library. Moreover, they've implemented the server badly, in the way that is incompatible with the wast majority of SSH client implementations. They have probably saved a couple of thousands by choosing an in-house (or, maybe, even worse, outsourced to overseas junior developer assistants) implementation based on outdated open-source, instead of paying for the supported commercial solution without such nasty bugs. At the same time they have found 35 mln. to invest into third-party something. Good job, security boys.
