Its like video games... PC games used to rule and it was all good. Now people realize how much money can be made in that industry so theres just one crappy fps after another because consoles have taken over. Hmmm, maybe that was a little bit of a stretch but hopefully you get what I mean. I think the community is already dead. Its not the way it used to be and it won't be like that again anytime soon. It seems like the free flow of knowledge has been reduced to a few drops here and there. The fewer people who are learning about computer security the bigger the threat becomes.

I seem not to understand what is happening to the security community..The profit and earning a living of the expert in the field is going to lead to the death of the security community.Now full disclosure movement is getting to be commercial disclosure, whereby each security community wants to expliot you to pay them to even get the latest vulnerability report and expliot,even when you need it to penetrate your server before the bad guy does.Which doesnt aid the people of the basics but even helps the scriptkiddie community(the greatest fear we face)I hope attention is given to these...and d fathers of d security comm' should have a re think, cos the continuity of the pursue of profit would bring the security of the internet wide as an open gate.
