First of all, we would like to thank all the researchers who have used SVCRP - the Secunia Vulnerability Coordination Reward Program - to coordinate the vulnerabilities discovered throughout 2012.
The winners of SVCRP 2012 are…
The winner of "Most Valued Contributor 2012" is: Parvez Anwar
Parvez Anwar delivers accurate reports that are easy to verify. Parvez has discovered a number of vulnerabilities in several differing products, and we want to reward him for his efforts on bringing us consistent detailed vulnerability reports.
Parvez also won the “Most interesting coordination report 2011” award last year, and it is a real pleasure to be able to award him for his efforts for two consecutive years.
We would also like to give a special mention to Charlie Eriksen, who reported 33 different vulnerabilities in 2012. Thank you, Charlie, for your efforts.
The winner of "Most Interesting Coordination Report 2012" is: Francis Provencher.
Francis Provencher for his discovery of SA50622 #1, a vulnerability in Novell GroupWise, caused by an integer overflow error in GroupWise Internet Agent (gwia.exe).
Congratulations to both Francis Provencher and Parvez Anwar for their excellent research efforts. We will be contacting both winners shortly with more information.
We will also give rewards to other researchers, who have coordinated via SVCRP and distinguished themselves based on e.g. number of coordinated discoveries, quality of reports, and popularity of affected products.
