Hi,
I'm working steadily on 2.0 of the open source security testing methodology
manual which is an open source methodology for completing thorough security
tests. I was wondering if anyone here has read through the modules and
tasks and can help with comments, suggestions, errata for improvements in
2.0. You can find it under projects at www.ideahamster.org.

Sincerely,
-pete.
