Forwarded from: Kurt Seifried <kurtat_private> OB disclaimer: I am working for iDefense as a contractor. What I don't get is this: a) iDefense hires someone fulltime as an employee b) iDefense hires someone on a contract basis c) iDefense hires someone on a one time contract basis for work rendered why is option c) bad but a) and b) are ok? You have the exact same problems with hiring people full time to do vulnerability research. At least iDefense is being open about this (i.e. publicly announce they are doing it, give credit, let customers know...), I hate to break it to you guys but many many companies have been buying security information/exploit code/etc on a contract basis for quite some time (and haven't been so public about it).
