    Going through Kaspersky's latest summary of Malware - Evolution, October - December 2005, I came across a research finding that would definitely go under the news radar, as always, and while The Hackers seem to be more elite than the folks that actually found the vulnerability I think the issue itself deserves more attention related to the future development of a market for 0day vulnerabilities.

    Two months ago, I had a chat with David Endler, director of Security Research at TippingPoint, and their ZeroDayInitiative, that is an alternative to iDefense's efforts to provide money as a incentive for quality vulnerabilities submissions.
