Builders, Breakers, and Malicious Hackers

Software has a dirty secret - it's flawed. Who is going to fix it? The builder, the breaker, or the hacker? Jeremiah Grossman manages to expose and explain the fragile balance between those three entities and why we won't have secure software anytime soon.
Builders build software, which gives breakers something to break. Breakers break software, a defensive sanity checking process, and provide insights into what attacks are theoretically possible... Then at some point malicious hackers hack said software, making what was previously possible probable. - Jeremiah Grossman, CTO of WhiteHat Security
