The 2019 Pwnie Winner For Epic Achievement

Steve Christey Coley

How much information about a bug can you fit in one sentence? Ask Steve Christey Coley, the single most prolific CVE entry writer on the planet. Sure, it was his day job, but Steve went above and beyond, spending over a decade writing dense dialect to define and de-duplicate bug reports for defense. Cataloging bugs may not be as sexy as finding them and making fun of bad vendor responses, but we all benefit from this basic identification infrastructure. Steve is a prominent member of the community and pays particular attention to gender inequity and other issues on the human side of infosec.
