The Eleventh HOPE (2016): "When Vulnerability Disclosure Turns Ugly" (Download)
Friday, July 22, 2016: 12:00 pm (Lamarr): Sam was accused of illegal hacking in the SC Magazine article “Professor Hacks University Health Conway in Demonstration for Class.” That article made a mess so big, it took a real lawyer, Alex Muentz, to clear it up. Sam will explain how this happened and Alex will then explain how he handled this and offer informed advice on the laws around vulnerability disclosure, along with how to use the media effectively. In addition, Alex will describe a few other cases where attempts at responsible disclosure went wrong, what had to be done to fix it, and how the disclosure should have been done.
