Kevin Mitnick selling Zero-Day Exploits, starting at $100K

at 11:38 pm. Filed under Other



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.

What is SOPA?

The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA, H.R. 3261) is on the surface a bill that attempts to curb online piracy. Sadly, the proposed way it goes about doing this would devastate the online economy and the overall freedom of the web. It would particularly affect sites with heavy user generated content. Sites like Youtube, Reddit, Twitter, and others may cease to exist in their current form if this bill is passed.
