Best of Security
To join, send e-mail to [email protected] with the following in the body of the message: subscribe best-of-security

REASONS FOR INCEPTION
In order to compile the average security administrator it was found that the compiler had to parse a foreboding number of exceptionally noisy and semantically-content-free data sets. This led to exceptionally high load averages and a dramatic increase in core entropy.
Further, the number, names and locations of this data appears to change on an almost daily basis; requiring tedious version control on the part of the mental maintainer. Best-of-Security is at present an un-moderated list. That may sound strange given our stated purpose of massive entropy reduction; but because best often equates with "vital" and the moderator doesn't have an MDA habit it is important that material sent to this list be delivered to its subscribers' in as minimal period of time as is (in)humanly possible.
If you find *any* information from *any* source (including other mailinglists, newsgroups, conference notes, papers, etc) that fits into one of the acceptable categories described at the end of this document then you should *immediately* send it to "[email protected]". Do not try and predict whether or not someone else will send the item in question to the list in the immediate future. Unless your on a time-delayed mail vector such as polled uucp or the item has already appeared on best-of-security, mail the info to the list! Even if it is a widely deployed peice of information such as a CERT advisory the proceeding argument still applies. If the information hasn't appeared on this list yet, then SEND IT. It is far better to run the risk of minor duplication in exchange for having the information out where it is needed than act conservatively about occasional doubling up on content.

I read through the messages and make sure that they adhere to the guidelines of the list (see below) and add them to the next digest. Weekly logs of digests are kept by the liSTSERV (see below for details on how to get them). For those interested in statistics, VIRUS-L is now up to about 2400 direct subscribers. Of those, approximately 10% are local redistribution accounts with an unknown number of readers. In addition, approximately 30,000-40,000 readers read comp.virus on the USENET.

WWW Security
To join, send e-mail to [email protected] and, in the text of your message (not the subject line), write: SUBSCRIBE www-security your_e-mail_address
The list is maintained by the www-security team of Network Services, Rutgers University Telecommunications Division.
www-security is the official mailing list of the IETF Web Transaction Security Working Group. While there are many approaches to providing security services in the Web, most of the current work is concerned with securing the HyperText Transport Protocol. Because of (1) the great need for quick implementation of Web security services, (2) HTTP-level solutions cover a wide range of WWW applications, and (3) the IETF is a proven forum for promoting standards to vendors and the international networking community, we suggest that the list focus and development of Internet standards and related documents for secure services within HTTP.
