Congrats: Now Security Researchers Are Afraid To Report Vulnerabilities
from the chilling-effects dept
Now that we keep hearing stories about security researchers in the US and elsewhere taking the blame for simply pointing out security holes, it was only a matter of time until security researchers started making it clear that the risk of pointing out security flaws just isn't worth it any more. Slashdot points to an article basically telling people in the security industry it's just not worth it. That's what you get when you repeatedly blame the messenger. Of course, the end result is that vulnerabilities stay open and those with malicious intent keep on causing problems.
