High bidders with low motives

August 8th, 2006 by Pete

High bidders with low motives - Patrick Gray

"THE 21st-century hacker has three options upon discovery of a vulnerability in popular software: sell it to a security company; give details of the bug to the company that makes the software; or sell it to the criminal underground.

Legitimate security companies are bidding against criminal syndicates to buy the hackers' handiwork, experts say. Security specialist iDefense actively markets its links to independent bug hunters, offering top-dollar to hackers for information it can pass to its vulnerable customers."
