I used to work as a programmer (though a long time ago now) and a week sounds like the minimum time needed to do the job, which was not enormously difficult in itself. They didn't implement
SSL; they would have used a library.
But to have done it all in a week means that, beyond a shadow of a doubt, they left themselves no time for an adequate testing regime. The new version hasn't been properly tested
-- we can infer this simply from how little time has elapsed. That's why they have outsourced the "testing" to PTR, which in any case has no access to the source code so is not capable of testing the system rigorously. This is incompetence pure and simple.
