Packetstorm Security Official Feeds

For the last year or so I’ve been offering access to a set of RSS feeds for Packetstorm Security, these feeds scrape the latest exploits, files and other similar web-pages. While they were originally for my own benefit they became quite popular and they have a good few hundred people watching them.

Unfortunately due to the fact the data is screen scraped from the HTML the feeds have proven to be an annoyance to me whenever the site changed its layout, which wasn’t often enough for me to ditch them but it was often enough to lose me a couple of Friday nights, firstly I’d like to say thanks to all the people that emailed me letting me know they liked them and wanted them fixed and working. Secondly I’d like to point out that Packetstorm have now started to expose their own RSS Packetstorm Security feeds. The feeds can be found at the bottom of the linked to page.

I’ll be leaving my feeds up for a couple of months and putting the occasional post in the feed pointing to the official ones, after that I’ll be taking them off line. The feeds being produced from the Packetstorm databases should be more up to date and robust than mine could be.
