OSVDB Needs Programmers

The Open Source Vulnerability DataBase (OSVDB) is in need of additional programmers. If you’re not familiar with it because you’ve been hiding in a cave somewhere, OSVDB is a tremendous project that dramatically enhances the quality and availability of vulnerability information. Today, they posted a teaser, “OSVDB is Closing:”

That said, OSVDB could substantially benefit from one or two developers before any such closing. Ideally we need a couple folks with solid PHP coding experience, PostgreSQL database manipulation, and the willingness / desire / time to work on the project. We can promise you fortune and fame! Ok not really. What we can offer you…

I should disclose that some of the projects they’re talking about are things that I’ve been discussing with Jericho, and so I’m eager for them to find great talent that will advance those projects.
