    * Lxlabs will not continue to run the business. [merged]

    Ok, the News is in
    Hello,

    Today I had discussion with Ligesh's family. From the discussion it is appears that Lxlabs will not continue to run the business.

    They are considering, releasing the software Kloxo and Hypervm under an Opensource license.

    I will be keep you posted

    However, the good thing is that they can make it OpenSource

    Key word is considering having it open source. They may not even have access to the source which I think would be a real possibility.

    Would there be any disadvantages of releasing it as opensource?

    Quite honestly, if/when it's opensourced, I expect a crap-load of vulnerabilities to be posted to almost every security site online within a week.

    I mean, Ligesh did a great job at all, but if he had the absolute basics of PHP vulnerable, wonder what else is even worse coded

    Hope the source comes out soon and people start debugging. For now; no more new servers with hypervm/kloxo

    Damn.. I was looking forward to positive results. At least they might release it to be open source, and others can continue it.

    I hope they do it open source. I know ligesh is dead and all but is it really a good idea to close it and screw up the 3 thousand + companys using it?

    HyperVM's a great piece of software when its working, it would be great to see it go open-source.

    Yeh its good news in a way that the code will still be used and not just lost.
    They do need to make sure there is not a straight change over to open source.
    As we know there are probably many flaws with the code.

    Therefore there should be a short period of say... a week or two where some coders can look over the code, and fix any major problems.

    This way when the code is made to open source there is not a mass of vulnerabilities released as this could be even more devastating that the previous hacks.

    I think that says exactly what Ligesh wanted to do with his software.

    You are joking right, letting programmers watch over someone else its code and believe this is done in just 2 weeks ? obviously it depends very much on documentation of the scripts, and you have to remember a seance is not the most reliable way to get any questions answered.

    It's going to take alot more than a week or 2 to fix the mess that is under the hood of HyperVM.

    In the past we couldn't get support out of them and were forced to decode a few pages to force 'hacks' to get things working.

    The quality of the code beneath hypervm is absolutely horrible, it literally made me want to cry.

    You actually managed to "decode" the software?
    2 weeks, was suppose to be time to fix any major flaws with the system not the whole thing. but I will admit I am no coder, and won't pretend to be... my knowledge is limited php and c++ only.
    Still I think it shouldn't switch straight to open source, there should be a slow move.

    Very good find

    Yes. Of course, we will open source everything one day anyway. But I do have very serious plans to expand into a proper firm. I need people who are as obsessive about software like me, which, to be frank is difficult to find here in India.

    thanks.

    True, there no comments written by the original coder. also there is no documentation available. It would take long time just to understand the code before one even tries to fix it.

    If anyone wants a sample:
