Kevin Mitnick has had a long life of ups and downs. He was hunted and jailed by the FBI for his hacking antics. Up until recently I would have considered him to be a trusted white hat hacker. His Mitnick Security company specialized in Pen testing. Now Kevin will be selling Zero-Day Exploits. This is a sad day.

The video below covers much of the Kevin story.\

Late last week, Mitnick revealed a new branch of his security consultancy business he calls Mitnick’s Absolute Zero Day Exploit Exchange. Since its quiet inception six months ago, he says the service has offered to sell corporate and government clients high-end “zero-day” exploits, hacking tools that take advantage of secret bugs in software for which no patch yet exists. Mitnick says he’s offering exploits developed both by his own in-house researchers and by outside hackers, guaranteed to be exclusive and priced at no less than $100,000 each, including his own fee.
