Dark Reading: More Exploits For Sale

13:05 CET, 14th October 2011 By Secunia.

In the article ‘More Exploits For Sale Means Better Security’, Robert Lemos asks the question: “Selling exploits can help companies test their systems, but is there room for an independent market?”

He discusses how, for 10 years, security researchers have been selling the details of significant vulnerabilities to bounty programs for profits. Lemos then focuses on NSS Labs’ ExploitHub.

Secunia’s CSO Thomas Kristensen is interviewed along with NSS Labs and eEye Digital Security. Kristensen says, “You will have a lot of people out there who want to make exploits, and they may not be able to get a job with a pen-testing firm…There will be room for an ExploitHub."
