On top of that, with regard to Linux, it is not only an analysis tool but also a function called "fuzz teting" that randomly inputs and raises a software error by causing an error to load vulnerability etc. is installed "Perhaps it may not be possible to reach perfect security, but I think people developing the default model of Linux are doing very well, apparent improvement is being produced," he said, We are satisfied with the contributions of developers about the current state of Linux development.

However, suppose there are engineers planning to attack Linux, "There is a wise person who does bad things in the world, I think that they want us to help us and help us We are aiming to make as many friendly "smart people" as possible before falling to the dark side, and if they are interested in security, they are pulled before attacking Linux We will improve security if we include it, "reveals the unexpected fact that it is impressed by the ability of people trying to find security holes from the Linux code.

In response to the question "Why are we keeping motivation to work on Linux?" Mr. Torvalds said, "It is truly happy to work on meaningful things, my working environment is truly attractive. I do not think it is a good-looking thing to wear a bathrobe at home. "
