If you’re here, you must be seriously lost. I’m sorry for your misfortune.
That said, if you’d like to hang around a while and see what’s here, then feel free. But be warned, I’m pretty damn good at wasting other people’s time.

This site is dedicated to preserving the history of early computer security digests and mailing lists, specifically those prior to the mid 1990's.

These forums are a valuable insight into the embryonic development of the field of computer security, especially as it relates to the Internet, and the development of the Doctrine of Disclosure.
