Never give up free BUGS!!@Hacking, cracking, Exploiting weakness and bugs: Pwn2Own hacker Charlie Miller>>>

I never give up free bugs. I have a new campaign. It’s called NO MORE FREE BUGS.

It was probably more than that $5,000 prize I won. It’s much less than the IE 8 vulnerability (exploited separately by Nils) by about a factor of ten. I could get more than $5,000 for it but I like the idea of coming here and showcasing what I can do and get some headlines for the company I work for (Independent Security Evaluators).
