<Edu says: If you are a newcomer and got here from this topic (http://www.governmen...showtopic=32251) then I advise you to read the rules below twice or three times !!! and... gotcha ya :P. />

Rules:

Thank you to dissolutions and the rest of the admin team for putting this together.

1) No Posting of warez/copyrighted content up to and including copyrighted source code.

2) Posting of IP addresses, email addresses, domains vulnerable hosts etc is strictly forbidden. When explaining you can utilize internal IP addresses, or syntax such as: 192.168.0.45, xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, http://********.com

3) No How to hack questions or compiling requests, if you are asking with regards to specific break attempts the system must be yours or your company. If it is an unauthorized system owned by a third party, it is against the rules. Any how to hack questions, "How do I hack FTP V1000.4?" or "Can you hack SMTP V5743.23 for me?" questions will result in a warn point.

4) Extreme profanity is not allowed on this forum, there is a small censor running right now, We hope you can use common sense so we don't have to make it a large censor. As well member names shall not contain profanity, vulgarity or be insulting to others.

5) Spamming of any type will not be tolerated. If you are found at fault you will be warned and/or banned.

6) As of this time signature blocks can contain URLs to your own personal site. The size of your signature block should not be extreme as to attract from forum posts. Your signature cannot contain images.

7) Flaming, trolling and the likes is strictly prohibitted.

8) Multiple accounts are not allowed, if you are found at fault all faulting names will be banned and removed. This includes registering for friends, or saving a friends spot.

9) Anybody whose account has been compromised due to a weak password, their account will be reduced to trial member status.

10) ServU, IRC Bots, DDoS bots, Botnets, IRoffer requests, configuration files and how to set up questions are forbidden on the forum, However we greatly encourage the conversations regarding disinfection, the newest methods of scanning and prevention, virus signatures and output data files and the likewise to a more white hat approach onto this subject matter.

11) Posting one word replies such as "Thanks", will result in a warn point, multiple violations will result in suspension or removal. Posts should be based on quality not quantity.

12) Posting of virii without clearly labelling for everybody in the general public usage may know that it is virii is strictly prohibited. If you offend this rule your private information will be turned public, your ISP will be notified with logs and proof of such activivities.

13) Proxy listings should be of your OWN, if you are found copying lists you will be warned, multiple warnings will lead to banning.

14) Attacks on the forum, in any sense includes XSS, SQL injection anything that can be found to be malicious to the users of GSO or the server itself will be dealt with by banning, and the attacker's IP will be released to the wild, while their ISP will be notified.

15) NO signature Images (amended 23/10/2006)

16) NO sites advertised in signatures unless you are the admin or domain registered owned , we do NOT tolerate spamming

General good behavior:
1. Posting research that you have done a certain exploits as to how they work, or how they are performed.
2. The posting of virus information or code, this leads to see great discussion and is encouraged.
3. The posting of Internet resources that may help other users in request for additional knowledge. Please refer to our spam rules on how do this properly.
4. The posting of procedures used when performing a security audit is a great resource and helps out many of the professionals that view the site.
5. Searching before you post as to prevent duplicate threads.

Warn points, the warn bar and the warning system
The warn bar is on every member. Each member starts with 0%. As you are warned you percentage increases in increments of 10%. For those having a warned percentage of 30% or more will face administrative punishment. This is to help moderators and administrators to discerning who is to be promoted etc. But also for users as an arrow in a large quiver of options in deciding wether a source is reputable, trustworthy and safe to follow. [BN says: All warn points and the bar itself are, uhhh, only seen by admins & mods.]

Removing Warning Points

if you received a warning ...you can ask the admin team member to review your status after 3mths to remove the warning providing you have NOT received more than one warning.... please contact the team member who gave you the warning

if you have been warned several times... the 3mth period dont apply to you ...its then up to the admin team member discretion regarding your conduct and status


User Ranks/User Groups:
There are 3 public usergroups:

i. Trial Members (Black)
-This is the usergroup you are immediately put into as you register, you'll have to post until you are sponsored by somebody of the specialist group or a moderator/admin. Trial Members have limited access to the forum, such as not being able to start a thread except for in forum title "Trial Member Forum", a delay between postings, unavailability of file downloads nor can Trial Members upload files. They are restricted from the Exploit Sections as well as the File Download sections.
Update: Currently not in use, registered members are automatically promoted to 'members'. May be re-used in the future.

ii. Members ( light grey)
-This is the common usergroup, people who have met the standards of a mod/admin or Specialist, are upgraded here, they have full access to the forum.

iii. Specialist (Dark orange)
-This is a special position in the usergroup ranking, you need to be sponsoured by a mod/admin to become nominated, and than a local vote is tallied. They have full access to the forum.

Private usergroups:

GSO Management (dark grey) : Senior administrators responsible for the site/forum management

General (dark blue): Co-admins responsible for the site/forum management


Moderators (Second and First Lieutenant)(Green): global moderators.

Overlords : special GSO research group. People in this group are nominated by moderators/administrators and are in general, highly regarded and trusted individuals.


Member Ranking: Post count no longer affects member ranking. Rank is determined by quality alone.
This is solely based on post count, it doesn't reflect anything of knowledge or level of expertise.

Here is the listing:

Title | Post Count | Image

hm... Either you changed the rules or didn't apply them yet. :) As a trial member I was able to start topics in the tutorials section, I can download files and can visit the Exploit and File download sections. The only thing I wasn't able to do was upload files.

As I am just returning after being offline for quite awhile (although I checked in occasionally at work) I thought I would take a look to be sure I had the rules still in memory, Glad I did as they have been updated recently Very clear and Concise.
Thanks to the Mods and GSecur for the update. :)

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


lol, simply save the page by your browser's menu. If you can't do that, then copy the rules and paste them in notepad.
You don't need to memorize them anyway, searching the web and reading the manuals as a habit solve everything, and is also good behavior. So keep in mind that this site is also not a haxor/warez site, then you have already learned all the rules.
So, have fun here, and welcome...

well what about putting a rule to disallow autohackers?
a)it has nothing to do with security
b)people who are not able to code a 2line batch file should not even think about using an exploit
c)its as close to a bot as it can be.
d)it makes sick that those postings get more replies than good stuff

Adding to point B):

These "autohaxxx0rs" are clearly being used maliciously. If someone is auditing their network, they require the vulnerability disclosure and a PoC to test their machines with. If it is neccessary to exploit further machines, a batch file takes 10 seconds to write. There is no need for something that can scan entire remote subnets and exploit the vulnerabilities one-by-one AUTOMATICALLY :lol: Tools of this nature surely detriment the learning environment here that helps so many people :)

Just my 2c :P

2) Posting of IP addresses, email addresses, domains vulnerable hosts etc is strictly forbidden. When explaining you can utilize internal IP addresses, or syntax such as: 192.168.0.45, xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, http://********.com

What about scanning? i.e. legalities of it vary widely but saw a post the other day scanning 128.* range for some exploit, thought it was sus and reported it, just not sure if i was meant to.. or is saying "i'm scanning blabla uni for blabla exploit" ok?
