Vulnerability auction site founder arrested in Italy



Roberto Preatoni, one of the brains behind the WabiSabiLabi vulnerability auction site, has been arrested in Italy in connection with an international corporate spying scandal.

Details of the allegations are very sketchy but according to published reports out of Italy (Google translation), Preatoni’s arrest is linked to a 2003-2004 case involving Telecom Italia and Brasil Telecom. At the time, Preatoni was working as a pen tester for Telecom Italia.

A spokesman for WabiSabiLabi today confirmed the arrest and made it clear the allegations have nothing to do with the controversial eBay-like auction site which was launched earlier this year as a place to buy and sell vulnerability research information.

Here’s WabiSabiLabi’s statement on the arrest:

Roberto Preatoni Strategic Director of WabiSabiLabi has been arrested and remains in custody in Milan.

WabiSabiLabi can not comment on the open investigation or the statements being made in the press.

From newspaper reports we presume the arrest relates to events in 2003/04 when his former company was hired by Telecom Italia’s Security division to safeguard Telecom Italias’ interests and are unrelated to WabiSabiLabi in any way.

Mr Peatoni’s unfortunate arrest has not affected the day-to-day operations of the WabiSabiLabi.

Roberto Preatoni is well known for his terrific contribution to information security and civil liberty and we are confident that his innocence will be established if a case ever comes to court.

Preatoni, who also co-founded the Zone-H cybercrime archive under the hacker handle “SyS64738,” is a regular on the security conference circuit. He recently presented at Microsoft’s Blue Hat Briefings.

Microsoft Stands By Its Invite to Arrested Hacker

Microsoft's security team invited Roberto Preatoni to give a talk at its Redmond campus and the hacker has since been arrested on charges related to a national spying case in Italy.

Microsoft's security team took a bit of a chance a few weeks ago, when it invited Roberto Preatoni to give a talk at its Redmond campus.

Preatoni is the founder of Wabisabilabi, a Switzerland-based company that bills itself as an auction site for the software bugs that companies like Microsoft never want anybody to see. He spoke at Microsoft in late September as an invited guest at Microsoft's semi-annual Blue Hat security conference.

But what had been an edgy invite by Microsoft's Blue Hat planners took on a new dimension this week, when Preatoni was arrested in Milan on charges relating to a national spying scandal at Telecom Italia, Italy's largest telephone carrier.

Preatoni's company confirmed his arrest in a statement Thursday, saying that his work for Telecom Italia was unrelated to Wabisabilabi (the incidents at Telecom Italia took place before Wabisabilabi was founded) and that the company was "confident that his innocence will be established if a case ever comes to court."

The charismatic Preatoni was a popular speaker at security conferences but his company's controversial business model raised some eyebrows.
