Please nominate Mr.DNS aka Dan Kaminsky for Most Overhyped Bug on the
Pwnie Awards 2008.
Perhaps if you bothered to read anywhere close to as much as you
write, you would have seen that Dino, one of the judges, specifically
disqualified this bug from the Pwnies for being too awesome:
I have heard about the vulnerability
In the future, don't stop at hearing about something and proceed
straight to working on comprehending.
People should ignore this and post the exploit to Full-Disclosure
before Blackhat conference to fuck up the Blackhat profits and show
everyone how lame the exploit actually is.
Turned down your talk submission on "secret stuff I do with MI5", did they?
Given how much you can't stand it when anyone but you gets some
attention for infosec stuff, Dan's patch must have triggered a full,
rolling on the floor, kicking, crying and screaming until you can't
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
