    [Full-Disclosure] Mailing List Charter
    John Cartwright <johnc@grok.org.uk>

    - Introduction & Purpose -

    This document serves as a charter for the [Full-Disclosure] mailing
    list hosted at lists.grok.org.uk.

    The list was created on 9th July 2002 by Len Rose, and is primarily
    concerned with security issues and their discussion. The list is
    administered by John Cartwright.

    The Full-Disclosure list is hosted and sponsored by Secunia.

    - Subscription Information -

    Subscription/unsubscription may be performed via the HTTP interface
    located at http://lists.grok.org.uk/mailman/listinfo/full-disclosure.

    Alternatively, commands may be emailed to
    full-disclosure-request@lists.grok.org.uk, send the word 'help' in
    either the message subject or body for details.

    - Moderation & Management -

    The [Full-Disclosure] list is unmoderated. Typically posting will be
    restricted to members only, however the administrators may choose to
    accept submissions from non-members based on individual merit and

    It is expected that the list will be largely self-policing, however in
    special circumstances (eg spamming, misappropriation) then offending
    members may be removed from the list by the management.

    An archive of postings is available at

    - Acceptable Content -

    Any information pertaining to vulnerabilities is acceptable, for
    instance announcement and discussion thereof, exploit techniques and
    code, related tools and papers, and other useful information.

    Gratuitous advertisement, product placement, or self-promotion is
    forbidden. Disagreements, flames, arguments, and off-topic discussion
    should be taken off-list wherever possible.

    Humour is acceptable in moderation, providing it is inoffensive.
    Politics should be avoided at all costs.

    Members are reminded that due to the open nature of the list, they
    should use discretion in executing any tools or code distributed via
    this list.

    - Posting Guidelines -

    The primary language of this list is English. Members are expected to
    maintain a reasonable standard of netiquette when posting to the list.

    Quoting should not exceed that which is necessary to convey context,
    this is especially relevant to members subscribed to the digested
    version of the list.

    The use of HTML is discouraged, but not forbidden. Signatures will
    preferably be short and to the point, and those containing
    'disclaimers' should be avoided where possible.

    Attachments may be included if relevant or necessary (e.g. PGP or
    S/MIME signatures, proof-of-concept code, etc) but must not be active
    (in the case of a worm, for example) or malicious to the recipient.

    Vacation messages should be carefully configured to avoid replying to
    list postings. Offenders will be excluded from the mailing list until
    the problem is corrected.

    Members may post to the list by emailing
    full-disclosure@lists.grok.org.uk. Do not send subscription/
    unsubscription mails to this address, use the -request address
    mentioned above.

    Alterations will be made after consultation with list members and a
