Who is the top vulnerability researcher? Who has discovered the most computer security vulnerabilities? Which country has the most researchers and publishes the most vulnerabilities? Who has discovered the most critical vulnerabilities?

From looking at OSVDB here are the top 12 researchers in terms of volume:

Take a look at the other OSVDB Browse categories and note you can even click on a Creditee’s name and see all of the vulnerabilities that they have discovered here: http://osvdb.org/browse

Of course our statistics are based off of the content in OSVDB and we need your help to provide better statistics. If you are a researcher, it would help if you could take the time to create an OSVDB account and update the vulnerabilities that you have discovered!

You can signup for an OSVDB account here: https://osvdb.org/account/signup

Here is a quick overview:

  • Search for your vulnerabilities at http://osvdb.org/search/advsearch
  • Click on your vuln, then click “Edit Vulnerability” -Click the Credits menu item, if credit is missing click “Toggle Add Author…”
  • You name may already be in the database, as you type it will search OSVDB to see if your information is there. If so, select and click “Add Author”.
  • Once you add the creditee information you can update your information or if your name is not there you can add it as a new creditee.

Rinse and repeat!
