The US National Security Agency purchases exploits

8 October 2013, by — admin ()

We recently learned about an annual contract between the US NSA and the French company VUPEN, according to which the French supplied the NSA with access to their database of vulnerabilities and exploits for targeted attacks against systems and sites.

Thanks to the Freedom of Information Act in the US, it was learned that this contract was signed as early as September 2012.

It also came to light that VUPEN cooperates with other NATO representatives, as well. According to an employee of the company, they actually do sell access to their data to the military and intelligence agencies.

Among hackers, however, this revelation caused mixed reaction since VUPEN’s database is not known for being either cheap or up-to-date, i.e. it is possible to obtain more complete and up-to-date information for less money. It was assumed that it is not the main channel for obtaining exploits, just one of them.
