Département principal

Around the debate on software vulnerability disclosure, existing works have mostly explored how disclosure gives an incentive to software vendors to better secure their software. The role of third parties such as business users, security firms, downstream software vendors or service providers is rarely taken account, while in fact these actors are increasingly involved in improving the security of a software. In this talk, I will present the results of an empirical study using data from 2009 to 2018 on vulnerabilities disclosed on SecurityFocus BugTraq on how the public disclosure of a critical vulnerability affects the contribution of software vendors and third parties in discovering new vulnerabilities.
