" Simply put, the TH-Research Mailing List is a place for the exchange of
ideas, information and cooperation between anti-malware researchers,
reverse-engineers and other professionals in related fields. While its focus
is not on "sample exchanges" (binaries, source code and so forth), we can
not ignore the importance of such exchanges in combating the spread of
malicious software and technology. Therefore, such exchanges are a part of
the list's purpose and to the extent it helps us all combat malicious
software, encouraged. "

as much as it pains me to say, i dont believe you are as naive as you seem,
nor are you half as stupid.

based on this snippet, your previous posts are bullshit. why are you really
posting? and if you have no good answer, do the relax and adjust thing and
stop this thread. if you dont like the list, unsubscribe.

Subject: [Full-disclosure] viruses being sent to this list

Hash: SHA1

Hello all, I kept quiet for a while as this is a not moderated mailing
list - but enough is enough.

Today's spoof, of an email supposedly coming from me with an infected
file was a cute trick by whatever kiddie, but doesn't really bother me.

What does bother me is the following:

Although this list is not moderated and thus suffers from an extremely
high noise-signal ratio, not to mention stupidity and flame wars, that
is all within acceptable parameters of being an unmoderated mailing list.

One who doesn't wish to be on it, can leave. One who doesn't wish to
read, can skip and/or delete email messages.

However, the mailing list has become, in a growing trend, a means by
which people transfer viruses, whether it is their intention or if they
got "0wned" is irrelevant, distributing malware is illegal, and should
be dealt with by the list owners.

It is also a growing concern among some of us that VX'ers now use this
list to propagate viruses, once they are out in the wild.

Viruses must not be spread, especially on a security mailing list and to
such a huge audience.

It is my opinion that it is the _duty_ of the list owners to do
something about this, as it is not only illegal, but it is irresponsible.

I'd have emailed the list owners privately, but as I am the latest
victim of the latest spreading mechanism for viruses - Full-Disclosure,
I demand and immediate public announcement on what is going to be done
about this problem.

Thank you,

Gadi Evron.
