Yesterday I celebrated my 29th birthday (again) and it was great to celebrate with friends, family, and coworkers. They say age is just a number, and I truly believe that. Unfortunately, we live in a world where laws require us to count numbers so that it can be determined if we can vote, drink, rent a car, and even retire from the workforce.
In our cyber security world, we love to count. In the world of the Zero Day Initiative (ZDI), the number of vulnerabilities disclosed so far in 2017 is just a number, but it’s a really big number! Last year, the ZDI publicly disclosed a record 690 vulnerabilities covering almost 50 vendors. As of the publishing of this blog, the number currently stands at 441! Is this the year we hit 1,000? Only time will tell. In the meantime, I invite you to take a sneak peek into the inner workings of the ZDI by reading Dustin Child’s blog: The Inside Scoop on the World’s Leading Bug Bounty Program.
