There are a number of simmering ethical issues when it comes to applied security research.  Vetting by research ethics boards is not enough, as some work can slip through the boards, and other work can slip through the cracks of ethics policies.  I'll draw on some of the work my colleagues and I have done in the area of security ethics, and combine it with some ideas from the last two workshops on ethics in computer security research (WECSR) to give an overview of the ethical landscape and what needs to be done to fix some of the problems.
