Dave Aitel and Matt Tait come on the podcast to chat with Benjamin Wittes about their recent Lawfare essay critiquing the current status of the Vulnerability Equities Process. Matt and Dave argue that the process by which the US government decides whether or not to disclose software vulnerabilities is fundamentally broken, and that now is the time to discuss how to fix it. On that note, they also address the recent leak of NSA information by the “Shadow Brokers” group, which included a number of exploits—among them several zero-days.
