Evan Schuman: Resurrection of Full Disclosure mailing list is great news, if you're not a cyberthief

Evan Schuman | April 2, 2014
The alternatives to an independent list like Full Disclosure can't match it for stopping new cyberattack tactics.

When Lyon announced the relaunch, he pointed to the list's "light, versus restrictive, moderation and support for researchers' right to decide how to disclose their own discovered bugs."

Most critically, he pledged to handle the pressures that made his predecessor give up. "I'm already quite familiar with handling legal threats and removal demands -- usually by ignoring them," Lyon said. "Vendor legal intimidation and censorship attempts won't be tolerated."

Sounds like the list is in good hands again. That's good news for everyone who struggles to ensure information security, and very bad news for cyberthieves everywhere.
