Strategy, Vulnerability management

Selling zero-days to governments takes some business savvy, says former bug broker

August 8, 2019
  • A non-exclusive selling strategy, whereby multiple buyers are pitched, can get complicated, so limit the potential transaction to a few trusted clients.
  • The price of zero-days are subject to the laws of supply and demand. Vulnerabilities and exploits will potentially lose value if the market is saturated with bugs and exploits that have similar capabilities. For that reason, being unique holds a strong financial advantage.
  • Consider opening an official company if you intend to regularly sell.
