Thank you for your feedback. It is appreciated.
The free database initiative was taken to contribute to
the 5 or so million IT workers in the world who can't afford the time
to spend 4 hours per day on email lists, trying to flush out
the 1 or 2% that is relevant to them, because their
bosses have more "urgent" things to do for them.
The update is a purely logistical issue.
We felt that one week was sufficient - we may reconsider this.
We felt is was relevant for 20 mailing lists because the database
covers every subject.
Subject: RE: [Full-Disclosure] openssl exploit code
You guys spam a lot too. How did you figure this was relevant for 20 mailing
Your free database is crap, you hold posts until the "weekly" update, and
and profit off of peoples free work, but sending out "alerts". (They could
just subscribe to vulnwatch and bugtraq, and save them self $3000+ a year).
You don't give full access to your database dumps, and I don't see any legal
You and packetstorm both have a nice reputation of being pro-spam now. (PSS
incident was a couple of years ago as Im sure most recall).
Marketing a 'free' database would be a good idea, if it were free.
Get an original idea, and try to profit off of that.
