I never realized the money to be made in selling exploits to companies and hiding it from the product company that the exploit effects.\ \ For example, say a hacker finds an exploit in Windows to install trojan software undetected and sells it to the NSA while withholding it from Microsoft, think what could be done until some “ethical” hacker finds the same exploit later and reports it to Microsoft?
