Responsible vulnerability disclosure: raising the bar
The New Zealand Internet Task Force (NZITF) won an award at AusCert earlier this year, recognising the work it does to get our security community talking and working together. Chair Mike Seddon says New Zealand's information security has come a long way in a relatively small period of time, and we have an active and friendly security community.
But one area of security where New Zealand can do a lot better is security vulnerability disclosure. In the following piece, he explains that how we disclose and how we respond to people who tell us about security vulnerabilities needs to get a lot better if we want to be more secure.
