    I would like to take this time to thank Wilders Security Forums, Admins, Moderators, and most importatly all of the wonderful members. I have learned so much and continue to learn every day from the plethora of information that flows through this forum. So, I feel that I owe a lot to everyone that continues to contribute to this forum.

    That being said, there is a purpose to this thread. I want to know what other forums exist. I'm sure that there are countless other computer / security related forums like Wilders Security Forums and I would like this thread to allow everyone to share their knowledge of other forums.

    So if you know of a popular, or not so popular, forum that you think people that like Wilders would enjoy, please share the URL.

    Dallen,

    Since the orginal forum you've posted in concerns topics concerning this board only, I've moved the thread to a more apropriate place.

    Thanks for the compliments ;)

    regards,

    paul

    Hello,
    I'm a member of say 7-10 security-related forums. None comes close to Wilders. If you want good, multi-dimensional and quick help, Wilders is the place.
    There's always someone who knows something about somwhere.
    Mrk

    What sets Wilders Forums apart from many others is a fierce sense of integrity: fierce meaning strong. A couple of years ago I helped a company keep on the lookout for the posting of a crack to one of its products. It appeared on many forums. Wilders was the *only* forum whose moderators removed the link. It appeared several times and when I saw it I just sent PM to a moderator and it was gone. No other forum on which it appeared did that, even when the company's president notified them. I resigned from one forum because of that.

    The policies here may seem a bit tight to some, but by and large I've always felt that they have been fair. Those who moderate and administer the forum appear to be pretty decent people. Computing is just another activity in our lives, and our activities reflect our own values.
    If a person doesn't lie, he is not likely to falsify an agreement online or provide false information about something.

    If a person doesn't cheat, he isn't likely to seek out game "cheats" or crack sites.

    If a person doesn't steal, he isn't likely to look for pirated software sites.
    By not permitting this type of activity in their forums, Wilders is quite a refreshing place to visit indeed.

    To answer your specific question, dallen, another computer / security related forum is DSLR which goes into areas not covered at Wilders:

    http://www.dslreports.com/forums/all

    Specifically, the Security forum often has topics not brought up here:

    http://www.dslreports.com/forum/security,1

    It also hosts the Kerio forum where the Kerio experts hang out :cool:

    regards,

    -rich

    I would appreciate being able to add our forum www.vista-xp.co.uk (featured on BBC Click online last weekend) Although a different style to Wilders we do offer HijackThis Log cleaning for one to one support especially when the larger security forums are busy with this type of service.
    We have a support team specific to logs who have all trained @MRU. We highly regard Wilders forum and would welcome any new members to our XP/Vista forum to add input to the various sections OS specific or Security related. Please feel free to join us and remember we now have a specific section for HijackThis logs.
