March Update: Challenge: OSVDB Winter 2010 Fundraising Goal = done

Back in January, I issued a challenge to see how many new vulnerabilities would be entered into OSVDB over a three-month period. January went by, then February, and then March came and went. For anyone out there keeping score, here’s March’s totals:

Yes, we missed a day on the 23rd, but there’s a good excuse there. It was the following Tuesday after St. Patrick’s Day, which is usually around the time my hangover wears off and I realized that food and sleep are “good things”, so I took a day off. I think. If you have any evidence that I was conscious on March 23, mail me. Just curious.

Anyway, there you go. Over the course of the challenge, we promoted 2,060 new vulnerabilities into OSVDB, and as promised, I’ll be donating $1,030.00 to the Open Security Foundation. Extra special thanks go to all of the moderators and manglers who made it happen; you have no idea how much time and effort they all spent to get these vulnerabilities into the database. Now that the challenge is over, anybody out there who would like to match the challenge, even on a fractional basis (such as 25% of the amount donated), please contact us here and we’ll provide details.
