Richard Clarke once said...

"If you spend more on coffee than on IT security, then you will be 
hacked. What's more, you deserve to be hacked."

For $1.00 at the local diner, you can buy a bottomless cup of coffee. At 
the local bookstore, a large three shot, double latte cappuccino is 
about $5.00. Ideally we'd like to see every InfoSec News subscriber 
sacrifice at least one or two (or more) days without his or her coffee 
to enable us to continue the work we've been doing, but also improve our 

Donation drives in the past have implemented the InfoSec News RSS feed, 
a digest version of InfoSec News, and the capability to run searches of 
past InfoSec News articles. A fast server was donated and has been 
running for some two and a half years, I can't say enough good things 
about our hosting company except with present economic conditions at 
this end its been tough trying to cover the related expenses of keeping 
it all up and running.

A donation of $1 to $5 isn't a lot when you consider the work done 
behind the scenes here, such as dealing with Microsoft SMTPSVC, bounced 
mail, and dead addresses. Its no small feat finding, filtering, 
formatting, and analyzing the news stories that more than 5000 
information security, homeland defense, and open source intelligence 
professionals depend on, on a daily basis.


Through PayPal we can accept donations in all the major currencies or 
with Amazon's Honor System, you can use your credit card without 
retyping it if Amazon already has it on file. However, Amazon and PayPal 
keeps 2.9% of your payment plus a fixed cost of $0.30 per transaction.

If you don't trust either one of those methods, that's OK, the mailing 
address here is...

I'm sorry but donations to infosecnews.org are not US tax deductible as 
charitable contributions. They may however be deductible as an operating 
expense. Contact your accountant for a determination. The same applies 
in other countries where corporations can make deductible donations 
under the terms of "Good Will".

The signature file space is also available, companies or organizations 
interested in sponsoring the list can contact me at:

We greatly appreciate any amount you're willing to send out way, 
Thank you for your support!
