Mano Paul expressed that Dustin Trammel (aka I)ruid) inquired via email, if HackFormers would be interested in being a beneficiary of royalty donations from authors of Exploit Hub, a NSS Labs project. Mano Paul was advised to request from Dustin more information, such as Exploit Hub’s customer list (who do they sell exploits to), and HackFormer’s degree of association as a beneficiary of exploit author’s donations. No decision was made, but to explore further.
