Like many people in the security blogger community, Tyler Reguly pays for his blog and other community efforts out of his own pocket. For the most part, that’s not a big issue, since there are many options for blogs that are free or cheap. But Tyler does more than just blog, he also hosts Damn Vulnerable Linux on his servers. Again, usually not a problem, except he got SlashDotted and now has a bill of several thousand dollars to pay! You can read the whole story and help by donating a few dollars to his cause. I’ve had a few brushes with the same experience myself, so I can fully understand the panic he’s probably going through. And on the off chance that he get’s more than the bill costs, he’ll be donating the overage to Hackers for Charity.
