Exploit Sales: The New Disclosure Debate
The security community is one that thrives on controversy, drama and debate. For years–decades, really–no topic satisfied this desire like vulnerability disclosure. Long after every possible argument had been forwarded and the horse was not just dead but buried and the grave covered by a strip mall, the debate has limped along, like Happy Days post-shark jump. Now comes the flood of bilious opinions regarding the commercial exploit market, a discussion that feels even more pointless than the disclosure debate because there’s absolutely nothing to debate.
