A new challenge has thrown down the gauntlet to see who is the best at findingand detecting vulnerabilities.
Finding vulnerabilities is on of the most challenging things you can do and you never know when or if you have finished. Numerous vulnerabilities are available from exploit providers on a daily basis, many of these go unknown to the affected software vendor for long periods of time.
“If we do not raise awareness and improve on our skills shortage in this area we are always going to be leaving our windows open for cyber thieves,” said Tor Macleod, Director at Via Resource, “Top talent in the industry has no price tag, with some vulnerabilities being sold to software companies for million dollar + figures.”
