HP asks researcher not to reveal router bugs at ToorCon
A researcher who was planning this weekend to disclose major vulnerabilities in Huawei and H3C routers has decided to scrap the presentation.
The researcher, Kurt Grutzmacher, was scheduled to deliver the talk Saturday at the ToorCon security show in San Deigo, but agreed to can it after being contacted this week by HP, the parent company of China-based H3C and a partner of Huawei.
On Aug. 6, Grutzmacher revealed the flaws to US-CERT, which was to coordinate with the affected vendors, he said in a Thursday blog post. US-CERT's disclosure policy dictates that the researcher must then wait 45 days before going public with the vulnerability details.
