Rob - bear in mind that digicrime is meant to be educational, and does the
job very well. Would you rather have your stack frozen by digicrime, where
you have been warned and can expect that this might happen, or by some other
hacked or seemingly innocuous site?
I personally recommend that all of our clients pay digicrime a visit - it
is a real eye-opener for them, and helps them to formulate security policies
and have them approved by management.
