I wanted to record something on my personal laptop and Camstudio, a popular open source screen recording tool which is released under GPL license popped instantly in my mind.
I had used this software many years ago and it was a pretty good screen recorder. Plus, I prefer open source over freeware because in case of former you can at least assume that the open source community would monitor and contribute to close any vulnerability in the software. In case of freeware you don't know what is inside.
I don't install software without verifying few things like its license, does it have any vulnerability, does it spread any malware and is it still being developed (End of life)?
The moment I visited the Camstudio website the first thing I noticed was that the latest version of the installer available was from October 19, 2013. The old version did raise an alarm because old version means lots of unpatched vulnerabilities.
