I would have voted Vulnerabilities Source Code (without Analayzer :D ), Didnt you say shaun you'd try and see whats the demand for xploits ?
I'm pretty confident this is the only thing myself (and many others) will have use of, but not only for whooping boxes, yet also helping others understand how exploits work and how to write them. I'm sure not few coders could use such examples, and ask questions directly.
But eventually, since you are complaining that most of the masses will use it for defacing boxes, I can just say that most of whats talked about in governmentsecurity forums is defacement of sites, tools for defacement, autorooters, new exploits and so on. not to mention - giving a public stage for defacing experiences, and compiled working exploit codes. So you're not quite "off the responsibility" on this one. You do help the kids deface, whether you like it or not. I, however, personally don't have any objection to this act, since those companies who make the programs, Micro$oft at particular, will never do enough to improve their products' security otherwise. they just won't learn, and customers who get hit might try alternatives, which will also affect those companies who release buggy products, to improve. and fact is, as much as i believe in the microsoft-u.s. government infamous conspiracy, they have got security standards much higher then how it was few years ago (yet still not good enough).

just my 2cents...

Yeap, sorry, you're right, exploit code does help people to learn. I'm sorry.

www.packetstormsecurity.org

Enjoy. :P


But on a serious note, I will edit the poll and add "exploits", and if exploit codes win, we'll write exploits for newly discovered vulnerabilities. If that's what you want, it's what you'll get. Don't come whinging to us when you realise that exploits really aren't so exciting...

Heh, I would quite like to write a firewall. Maybe we could do multiple stuff...


Thank you for your time.
Shaun.

i think that a code analyser would be the best...
that's what we don't have...
i don't understand what it will be able to do but i think it will be great...
also, for guys that post a scanner or are going to post for scanner request, i must tell them to think about this again...
cause scanners are everywhere out...
they can google for them...

Looks like source code analyser is winning so far. Keep those votes coming, whoever hasn't voted yet.
By the way, I haven't voted, I submitted a null vote to keep it as fair as possible.
