The Red Cross of the Internet

The Dutch Institute for Vulnerability Disclosure (DIVD) scans the internet for vulnerabilities and reports these to people who can fix them. Shairesh will go into some of the recent cases, ranging from KaseyaVSA, to Log4j in 2021 and shares some of the 2022 highlights. He will also give an introduction on how the DIVD has professionalized vulnerability disclosure and why they are allowed to somewhat break laws on computer crime and privacy.
