On this week's show we're chatting with COSEINC's Thomas Lim about the Wassenaar Arrangement. It's basically a worldwide framework that restricts the sale of munitions and dual use technologies, and it has exploits in its sites.
COSEINC is a security research company that engages in exploit development, and Lim thinks extending regulations to exploit sales is pointless.
This week's show is brought to you by BugCrowd, a company that was founded in Australia but is now based in San Francisco thanks to VC investment.
Bugcrowd runs outsourced bug bounties, and its founder and CEO Casey Ellis joins the show in this week's sponsor interview to talk about the latest goings on in the burgeoning bug bounty industry!
