Hiding vulnerability information hinders solutions and mitigation more than it hinders attackers.
Oh well, fortunately we were turning back some pretty awesome talks in the runners-up this year, so now we will be able to use that slot for something else i regretted having to turn away....
(P.s. I notice my overuse of the word "awesome" these days. Wish I could get that "Everything is Awesome" LEGO soundbite out of my head... freaking infectious soundmemes.)
As a great example, take the Sprint Airrave (a US cell phone company's femtocell). In order to function properly, it MUST be the first device behind your point of presence, so its WAN port must truly face the WAN. The instructions included with the unit, and apparently the story told by the techs who come to install it, is that it autoconfigures itself and if it needs to be worked on you must call the cellphone company.
...the default login is admin/admin, the techs who install them don't change that, and the configuration panel is open on the WAN port. When the unit at my parent's house was having issues, and I discovered just how insecure it was, I was not happy.

I'm scratching my head, really because this is one of "those" days where I'm overwhelmed and feeling like I just want to get the flip out of here. Nothing seems to be going well or right and then this comes in and I'm nudged on by the fact that this isn't about how tired or strung out I am. It's not about how I feel. It's about something bigger that people like David D Rude II (bannedit) believe in enough to sacrifice for.
And just like that, I'm back in the fight."
Your move, attackers...
