John Cartwright <johnc () grok org uk>

- Introduction & Purpose -

This document serves as a charter for the [Full-Disclosure] mailing 
list hosted at lists.grok.org.uk.

concerned with security issues and their discussion.  The list is 
administered by John Cartwright.

The Full-Disclosure list is hosted and sponsored by Secunia.

Alternatively, commands may be emailed to

either the message subject or body for details.

- Moderation & Management -

The [Full-Disclosure] list is unmoderated. Typically posting will be
restricted to members only, however the administrators may choose to 
accept submissions from non-members based on individual merit and 

It is expected that the list will be largely self-policing, however in
special circumstances (eg spamming, misappropriation) then offending 
members may be removed from the list by the management.

instance announcement and discussion thereof, exploit techniques and

forbidden.  Disagreements, flames, arguments, and off-topic discussion 
should be taken off-list wherever possible.

should use discretion in executing any tools or code distributed via

this is especially relevant to members subscribed to the digested 
version of the list.

The use of HTML is discouraged, but not forbidden. Signatures will 
preferably be short and to the point, and those containing 
'disclaimers' should be avoided where possible.

Attachments may be included if relevant or necessary (e.g. PGP or 
S/MIME signatures, proof-of-concept code, etc) but must not be active 
(in the case of a worm, for example) or malicious to the recipient.

Vacation messages should be carefully configured to avoid replying to 
list postings. Offenders will be excluded from the mailing list until 
the problem is corrected.
