POC EXPLOITS DO MORE GOOD THAN HARM: THREATPOST POLL
When it comes to the release of proof-of-concept (PoC) exploits, more security experts agree that the positives outweigh the negatives, according to a recent and informal Threatpost poll.

Up to 38 percent of respondents, meanwhile, argued it wasn’t a good idea. The debate comes on the heels of PoC code being released last week for an unpatched remote-code-execution vulnerability in the Citrix Application Delivery Controller (ADC) and Citrix Gateway products.
