Chris Evans, Google’s researcher herder said that Googlers spend some time on research that leads to the discovery of bugs such as ‘Heartbleed’. The team Project Zero has been the result of the success of this part-time research. He also reported that they will be working on the improvement of any software carefully attending to the attackers’ motivations, targets, techniques, finding and reporting various vulnerabilities.
The vulnerabilities are likely to get public once the vendor issues a patch and then Google will give information on exploits, exploitability, time taken to fix the issue and other information. George Hotz, who in 2007 jailbroked the iPhone, detected big flaws in Google Chrome in the current year, reverse-engineered the Playstation 3 is currently one of the members of Project Zero in addition to well-known researchers namely Tavis Ormandy and Ben Hawkes.
