: I am looking for a mirror for Bugtraq and Full-disclosure postings for
: data mining and searching purposes.
: Currently, marc.theaimsgroup.com is being used due to it's decent search
: capabilities. The problem is that it does not provide the full e-mail
: subject line on the results page.
: SecurityFocus provides the full subject (formatting aside) for at least
: Bugtraq, but it's search capability is definitely lacking.
: I've tried some other mirrors, but have found most to have sub par
: search capabilities (I'm looking for full subject and body text search)
: and/or lack of options (results must be sorted by descending timestamp).
: So, what site do you guys turn to when you need to search the Bugtraq
: and/or Full-disclosure mailing lists?
For day to day use, archives.neohapsis.com but it uses google as the
search engine, and doesn't display some other header information that can
be useful. I can't cite any examples right off, but when there is a
question of the date/time published, neohapsis (and other archives) will
only show the client set date, which may be wrong.
Personally, if I need more details I use a local copy of the archived
posts and grep/search as needed. Using procmail to save a copy of each
list into its own folder has been incredibly helpful over the last few
