Good Bye, Full Disclosure

The famous mailing list “full disclosure” closes its doors – John Cartwright, the Founder and maintainer

of the list announced the closing of the lis today.



I’m not willing to fight this fight any longer. It’s getting harder┬áto operate an open forum in today’s legal climate, let alone a

security-related one. There is no honour amongst hackers any more.

There is no real community. There is precious little skill. The

entire security game is becoming more and more regulated. This is all

a sign of things to come, and a reflection on the sad state of an

industry that should never have become an industry.

I’m suspending service indefinitely. Thanks for playing.


Sad, but true .. I will miss this valuable source of information.
