Pwnie Awards 2017

The 2018 Pwnie Award For Most Over-Hyped Bug

Holey Beep

Privlege escalation in beep. Yes they had a webpage and logo, but their page is actually an attack against branded vulnerabilities and is way funnier than pwnie award writeups. It made securityweek and a German researcher said beep should be killed in response. In the end, all 1.86% of systems that had beep installed were better off thanks to this research. It also makes a great white elephant gift.
