Since its inception in 1999, SecurityFocus has been a mainstay in the security community. From original news content to detailed technical papers and guest columnists, weve strived to be the communitys source for all things security related. SecurityFocus was formed with the idea that community needed a place to come together and share its collected wisdom and knowledge. At SecurityFocus, the community has always been our primary focus.
The SecurityFocus website now focuses on a few key areas that are of greatest importance to the security community.
- BugTraq is a high volume, full disclosure mailing list for the detailed discussion and announcement of computer security vulnerabilities. BugTraq serves as the cornerstone of the Internet-wide security community.
- The SecurityFocus Vulnerability Database provides security professionals with the most up-to-date information on vulnerabilities for all platforms and services.
- SecurityFocus Mailing Lists allow members of the security community from around the world to discuss all manner of security issues. There are currently 31 mailing lists; most are moderated to keep posts on-topic and to eliminate spam.
