    Today, it's a decision made by the security researcher and the company
    they work for who gets what exploit code. Down the road, my expectation
    is that the question will be addressed in courts via civil lawsuits.

    And what makes you think that you and your friends who
    share your dozen exploits are the right hands? What
    because you have the skill to write them, you are the
    right hands?

    Who decides who can have what?

    That's what I thought.
