An anonymous reader writes "I'm a security researcher finding bugs in operating systems and in various applications. Recently, I got a couple of e-mails trying to convince me, using not-so-great English, to sell my, presumably unannounced, 0-days for money:
We are a security research company that has a unit dedicated to vulnerability research. We have now started buying exploits from the market to fasten our research and our current interest area is Windows 7 / Macintosh exploits ( Unpatched or Zero days ). We will pay the researcher better than the other initiatives depending on the quality of exploits. Kindly reply if you are interested with what all exploits you have currently so that we can discuss over the same. In case something is of interest we can close the deal immediately and pay via most of the channels possible.
