Vulnerability Finding Tips

If you are in the process of conducting vulnerability research, there are a few tips to keep in mind.
First, always assume that there is more than one vulnerability. The vendor may say that it's only one but be sure to confirm this with other sources like the CERT and Trustwave.
Second, take note of any publicly available information about the vulnerabilities. If you have access to a past security report from the vendor or their website, note anything that might be relevant to these issues.
Finally, remember that your research will only last so long as the vendor does not release a patch for these issues. Be sure to conduct follow up research if necessary and make sure to report your findings!
