Subject: Re: Fwd: Google vulnerabilities with PoC

You are wrong, because we do have proof of concepts. If we didn't have
them, then there would be no case.

But if there are video clips, images demonstrating impact - in which case
arbitrary file uploads (which is a write() call ) to a remote network, then
it is a vulnerability. It is not about the bounty, but rather about not
defying academic literature and widely recognised practise.

Attacking the arguer, won't make the bug to go away.
