Subject: Re: [Full-disclosure] iDefense Q-1 2007 Challenge

No offense to iDefense as I have used their services in the past... but 
MY Q1 2007 Challenge to YOU is to start offering your researchers more 
money in general! I've sold remotely exploitable bugs in random 3rd 
party products for more $$ than you are offering for these Vista items 
(see the h0n0 #3). I really think you guys are devaluing the exploit 
market with your low offers... I've had folks mail me like WOW iDefense 
offered me $800 for this remote exploit. Pfffttt not quite.

We all know black hats are selling these sploits for <=$25k so why 
should the legit folks settle for anything less? As an example the guys 
at MOAB kicked around selling a Quicktime bug to iDefense but in the end 
we decided it was not worth it due to low pay...

Low Pay == Not getting disclosed via iDefense....
