Re: Google vulnerabilities with PoC

On top of that, Google spent millions of dollars to buy Chrome exploits,
sandbox bypasses
and webapp bugs. So, if this was a REAL bug with some REAL security
impact, I don't think Google wouldn't have paid.

They have a REAL budget for that, they are not like Yahoo that sends you
a t-shirt.

The security industry has become a big business for many, with bug
bounties, no more free bugs (and hugs),
100 pages of low/info risk findings bumped to high risk to scare the
customer, and so on.

At least do not pretend money when there is no security bug,
and in general don't be a pretender if you don't have a clue.

I believe Zalewski has explained very well why it isn't a vulnerability,

There is nothing to gain being on eithers side but for the sake of
security. As a penetration tester, writer, and malware analyst with a long
and rewarding career...it would be absurd to admit that this is not a
vulnerability. If the content-type fields can be altered and the API
accepts it that is undoubtedly a vulnerability, I believe that it shouldn't
be there. It would be a shame to say that this is not a security problem.
I have seen different responses on this thread but having seen the proof of
concept images as well I just think that some of the people commenting here
are just being hostile.

It doesn't take much for somebody in the field, to see clearly that Google
does not want to pay. And I bet any amount of money that the bug bounty
program is a way for filing potential threats by name and bank details.
