This technical discussion list covers vulnerability research, exploit development, and security events/gossip. It was started by ImmunitySec founder Dave Aitel and many security luminaries participate. Many posts simply advertise Immunity products, but you can't really fault Dave for being self-promotional on a list named DailyDave.

- Fishing for Obscurity

Some sharks and fish have a unique sixth sense – they can generate and
detect electrical fields, even minute ones. According to the font of all
natural knowledge, the Discovery channel (as opposed to Dawson's Creek, the
font for all social knowledge), a hammer head shark's funny looking head is
actually a voltmeter of...

Voting Village at Defcon

So I don't know a ton about the details of voting machines, but I'm pretty
sure what happened at the DEFCON voting village is not being represented at

So soon after the Immunity deal closed we had this big all hands conference
call with everyone in the larger Cyxtera group on it, and Chris Day, who
runs the group I'm in, said, "Hey Dave, can you give everyone a quick
rundown as to what Immunity is, now that we're all one big team?" and I'll
be honest, I totally bombed.

extremely bland and generic...

As Ryan Naraine has pointed out I never did an announcement on this mailing list when Cyxtera<https://www.cyxtera.com>
and Immunity finally closed our deal. Partially that's because these things are in some ways anti-climactic, and
partially because I and a lot of the team at Immunity immediately went on a binge of experimenting with various large
toolkits we'd never had access to before.

For example, this one:...
