Google Project Zero delivering benefits

Most people won’t know about Google Project Zero – but it’s worth knowing about. I learned about it a few months ago, although the effort was started back in 2014 after the now-infamous heartbleed security vulnerability. It is an effort to focus and drive on a particularly nasty set of bugs to identify – low-level software exploits, funded and hosted by Google. The wikipedia article on Google Zero is pretty good for the history.

This morning as I was applying a software update, I scanned through the release notes, and quite a number the set I reviewed were security patches informed through CVE’s generated or found through Project Zero. As an effort to support and bolster the lowest level of software infrastructure, I’ve got to applaud it.
