Steve, thanks to the community support we are able to afford a hosting
for insect pro with unlimited bandwith. Now located in USA which
allows higher transfer rates.

We apologize if you got the wrong picture, but right now we don't need
unofficial hosting... I don't care if you want to share it with
whoever you want. I do appreciate your offer but we are going to pass
this time. We have official releases almost every weeks.

The latest version is on our own site and we started to share every
new version with all our supporters, thus there is no need to include
mirrors so far. If something comes up I'll let you know.

I'm sending you the latest version of Insect Pro 2.5 to your personal
email in a couple of minutes.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to email
me at jsacco () insecurityresearch com

Juan Sacco

see is the version 1.1 and is not an official version, on the other

The version made available is older (2.0 version, not 1.1 as you claim), but
it is an official version, or at least what you gave me as an official
download.  There is also a recompressed version with the same content for a
smaller download size for people that want that.
As I said before, I'll happily update the version hosted there to the newest
version if you allow it.  My download password stopped working at the time
of the next release, and emails about it have been ignored.

INSECT Pro 2.5 is free and we only ask for a donation to show
interest. The amount of the donation is not fixed.

Please, let's not start this up again.  Your page clearly says you are
buying a license, and has removed all comments about it being free.  The
licenses of the software you include (Metasploit and Skipfish) allow this,
and there's no benefit to you making the claim of the software being free.
 You may or may not offer some licenses gratis, but that's different from
the software being free in the sense that most people understand.  If it's
free, I'll happily host newer versions for free download for everyone.
 Otherwise, stick with the license language you have on your website.

To be clear, I have no problem with you offering licenses for sale, offering
licenses for donations, or making software freely available. Just do the one
you are claiming to do please.
