"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 $5.75. Ideally we'd like to see every InfoSec News subscriber 
sacrifice at least two to three (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 $3 to $7 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 
however, PayPal keeps 2.9% of your payment plus a fixed cost of $0.30 
per transaction.

If you don't trust Paypal, that's OK, the mailing address here is...
