Busy week Posted by Mikko @ 19:01 GMT

It's going to be a busy week with lots of announcements ahead of us: the Black Hat Briefings and DEF CON conferences are on in Las Vegas. We have some of our people on location and should be getting updates from them as the shows progress.

There has already been some discussion about new Oracle holes as well as TippingPoint Technology Inc's new program where they are buying exploits. This has generated lots of discussion considering this isn't anything new: iDefense (bought by Verisign last week) has been paying money for exploits and vulnerabilities for several years and is now raising it's payments to respond to new competition.
