SecLists.Org Security Mailing List Archive

SecLists.Org Security Mailing List Archive

Any hacker will tell you that the latest news and exploits are not found on any web site — not even Insecure.Org. No, the cutting edge in security research is and will continue to be the full disclosure mailing lists such as Bugtraq. Here we have provided web archives, updated in real-time, for many of our favorite lists:

Insecure.Org Lists

Nmap Hackers — Moderated list for announcements, patches, and light discussion regarding the Nmap Security Scanner and related projects.
Current year | Archived posts | RSS Feed | About list

Nmap Development — Unmoderated technical development forum for debating ideas, patches, and suggestions regarding proposed changes to Nmap and related projects.
Current quarter | Archived posts | RSS Feed | About list
Other Excellent Security Lists

Bugtraq — The premier general security mailing list. Vulnerabilities are often announced here first, so check frequently!
Current month | Archived posts | RSS Feed | About list

Full Disclosure — An unmoderated high-traffic forum for disclosure of security information. Fresh vulnerabilities sometimes hit this list many hours before they pass through the Bugtraq moderation queue. The relaxed atmosphere of this quirky list provides some comic relief and certain industry gossip. Unfortunately 80% of the posts are worthless drivel, so finding the gems takes patience.

Security Basics — A high-volume list which permits people to ask “stupid questions” without being derided as “n00bs”. I recommend this list to network security newbies, but be sure to read Bugtraq and other lists as well.
