That should be illegal. Regardless, I wonder if the creator of that site sees the irony in putting a book about lies near the top of a site that misrepresents itself?

I do know that if you subscribe to 2600 you will be automatically placed on the FBI watch list. It was something the security advisor I previously mentioned advised us not to do..
hmmm wonder if u are on the list if you download the compressed RFC libary :-)

If you want to be secure a network, you need to know the exploits... I dont see any problem with reading 2006, or any other "security" webzine

Homeland security is going to have a full plate domestically. Especially if the are going to pursue garbage like the link below.

Why did dozens of government agents in hazmat suits descend upon the home of prominent artist Steve Kurtz the day after his wife died? Why did they confiscate his books, papers, art materials, his car, his cat and even his wife’s body? Because among the art materials confiscated were a DNA amplifier and bacteria samples.

After the county examiner determined that Hope Kurtz had died of a heart attack and though the health department had stated, in agreement with a number of highly respected scientists, that the bacteria in question were harmless, you might then ask, how artist and professor Steve Kurtz could possibly be facing a twenty year prison sentence?

It all started when Steve Kurtz called 911. On the morning of May 11, 2004, Steve Kurtz woke up to find that his wife of 20 years, Hope Kurtz, was no longer breathing.

While in the Kurtz home, paramedic responders noted the laboratory equipment and Petri dishes in his studio and they reported Kurtz to the police. A warrant was obtained and Kurtz’s home was searched.

Kurtz, art professor at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Buffalo, is a founding member of the Critical Arts Ensemble (CAE), a group which travels the world making science-based performance art. CAE exhibits, which explore topics such as DNA and bacteria, challenge, among other things, the veracity of the biotechnology industry.

Does this make anyone with lab equipment in their home a suspected terrorist? Hide the petri dish the ambualnce is coming!
