A new vulnerability has been found (and thankfully, contained) by Qihoo 360 developer Guang Gong who had been working on the exploit for three months before demonstrating it at the PacSec conference in Tokyo.
Google had a representative at this conference who was able to see the bug working in action. As reward for Gong’s work, he will be flown all the way to Vancouver for the CanSecWest Applied Security Conference where he will go on a ski trip.
Thankfully this vulnerability can be patched through a Chrome update through the Play Store, unlike Stagefright which required a software patch to the OS.
Most people are careful about the kinds of sites they visit. Particularly sites offering copyrighted material for free can be riddled with malware and virus links.
... he will be flown all the way to Vancouver for the CanSecWest Applied Security Conference where he will go on a ski trip and have a little accident (and die). :P
Well i did not say all of the people that but iproduct for show... i said usually(mostly) people do this. and i mean a lot of them...
what a nice gesture. You alert a big corp about a security risk and instead of denying everything to death and bringing in the lawyers, they reward the guy for finding and fixing their bad. thumbs up.
