The National Vulnerability Database is maintained by the National Institute of Standards and Technology and has been unavailable since late last week, according to an e-mail sent by NIST official Gail Porter published on Google+. At the time of this article on Thursday afternoon, the database remained down and there was no indication when service would be restored.

Sure they'd have to overwater the testsubject for the diarreah benches and the throat will probably bottleneck the bulimia tests.

Apparently they missed one on the list. Though I think a list of Internet vulnerabilities is kind of a fruitless endeavor. You can never get all of them and new ones are being made all the time. I wonder if people will actually look at this list and see if their bases are covered rather than SQA test their websites and web apps.




And finally, this should be a light enough thread for to say...

BavarianBlessed...your avatar has always freaked me the hell out.

and I don't know why seriously...where did you find that thing. LOL
