Vupen has been hacked – possibly hit by the unknown unknown

There are reports a French group called Vupen, who are famous as resellers for zero-day vulnerabilities, has been hacked – and 130 zero-days have been leaked. If you look at their target client description you’ll see why this is important (http://www.vupen.com/english/services/lea-index.php). A really basic zero-day can sell for £1000; a decent one – like they sell – can go for £100,000+. If these guys can’t protect themselves then there is little hope for anyone else if someone decides they really want to get in.

Think about that – 130 0-days possibly in the hands of who knows whom… I can feel a rash of Flames coming on.

    Nothing was hacked, nothing was leaked, this news is shit that’s all.

    They had their chance to respond to Attrition.org’s email before they went public, they chose to ignore it. Sure, thats not evidence but speaks to a cover up in my mind.

    yeah, because VUPEN’s CEO is going to tweet “0day can happen to anyone, lol, internet over.”

    I think your headline is misleading.

    There’s not been any evidence that I’ve seen that Vupen has been hacked. In fact Vupen’s CEO says it’s nonsense. See https://twitter.com/cBekrar/status/210616913729036288

    Maybe we need to take the claims with a pinch of salt unless something shows up which suggests it might be true.

    Of course, if it *was* true it would be big news. But at the moment everyone is just retweeting a rumour.
