0Day on Ebay

Brand new Microsoft Excel Vulnerability:”

The lot: One 0-day Microsoft Excel Vulnerability

Up for sale is one (1) brand new vulnerability in the Microsoft Excel application. The vulnerability was discovered on December 6th 2005, all the details were submitted to Microsoft, and the reply was received indicating that they may start working on it. It can be assumed that no patch addressing this vulnerability will be available within the next few months. So, since I was unable to find any use for this by-product of Microsoft developers, it is now available for you at the low starting price of $0.01 (a fair value estimation for any Microsoft product).

If that makes any sense, read the auction while you can. Its not Gobbles, but it’s pretty funny. [Update: Gone, but not forgotten. See “Selling Vulnerabilities: Going once..” for the text.
