Those of you who frequently visit Insecure.Org may have noticed that are
web presence has been more reliable lately. That is due to the
contributions of several generous companies and individuals. We do not
actually solicit donations, but we do appreciate them when they
happen. Thansk to these people we have been able to upgrade our 'net
connection. We no longer depend on a network of rogue servers hidden and
maintained by employees of various unsuspecting corporations and
universities! This means Insecure.Org no longer goes down when an
"agent" quits his job or when the server is discovered by IS
departments. So I would like to the following groups for contributing
this year (in no particular order):
Sun Microsystems Global Enterprise Security Service (GESS Team) (
http://www.sun.com ) -- These guys contributed a new Ultra 1! Arranged
by Lance Spitzner.
VA Linux/Slashdot.Org/Freshmeat.Net ( http://www.valinux.com ) -- These
guys have contributed money and ad impressions.
SecurityFocus ( http://www.securityfocus.com ) -- Contributed ad
impressions. Arranged by Aleph One.
Twoguys Software ( http://www.twoguys.org ) -- They donate many gigabytes
of bandwidth per day through their squid proxy that serves a portion of
www.insecure.org requests. Arranged by Greg Hankins.
DSL Reports ( http://www.dslreports.com ) -- Contributed some cash towards
our bandwidth costs. Arranged by Justin Beech. They also offer some
neat online scanning services (which use Nmap).
Area Systems ( http://www.area.com/ ) -- I bought a cheap account at this
ISP and proceeded to put up a web site which takes up hundreds of megs
of disk space and many gigs of bandwidth per day. Yet they have never
complained and have even set up a custom apache server for me on a
dedicated IP address.
Anyway, kudos to those people!
And I must admit I have an ulterior motive for sending this mail -- Nmap
OS detection seems to run into problems when I have 400 qmail processes
spewing out mail. Dropping a note to the list is the best way to
reproduce this so I can fix it :). I've got tcpdump and gdb waiting in
another window for when I press "send" :).
