Packet Storm "is the largest Internet security tool database in the world. We provide intelligence ranging from security tools to system defense and assessment information. Understanding that there is no way we can begin to design and develop stronger systems and defenses unless we know what vulnerabilities exist, Packet Storm follows a strict policy of full-disclosure, publishing all pertinent information that we receive on security related materials. About half our content is submitted to us - If you have security related information that is not on our site, do not hesitate to send it in."

Security Archive: This archive is a combination of the Bugtraq, CERT, linux-security, linux-alert, rootshell, security-discuss and security-audit mailing lists. With the help of procmail, new messages are automatically added to the archive as they arrive.
