Good bye securityfocus

I just read the sad announcement that SecurityFocus is going to be shut down (or phased out to sound more nice). The mailing lists will remain for a while, but all the rest will be moved to the Symantec web site…

Take a look: http://www.securityfocus.com/news/11582:

Beginning March 15, 2010 SecurityFocus will begin a transition of its content to Symantec Connect. As part of its continued commitment to the community, all of SecurityFocus’ mailing lists including Bugtraq and its Vulnerability Database will remain online at www.securityfocus.com There will not be any changes to any of the list charters or policies and the same teams who have moderated list traffic will continue to do so. The vulnerability database will continue to be updated and made available as it is currently. DeepSight and other security intelligence related offerings will remain unchanged while Infocus articles, whitepapers, and other SecurityFocus content will be available off of the main Symantec website in the coming months.

While the news portal section of SecurityFocus will no longer be offered, we think our readers will be better served by this change as we combine our efforts with Symantec Connect and continue to provide a valuable service to the community. As always, if you have any questions or concerns you can reach us at editor-at-securityfocus-dot-com.

Security Focus was a good site while it last and served its purpose very well.

    Seems so weird that they'd leave up everything except for the news portal.
