Remember David Rook and how hard an action was taken to delete his
presentations from OWASP website because she was promoting 'Riot Games'
with Riot logo not being 'vendor neutral in his presentation? (yes Riot
games does not sale any security products just games)

Were David presentations set back on OWASP site? Was this discussed?

Why don't we take '*similar' or even close *actions when a project with
clear and tangible conflict of interest has crossed the line and a vendor
that has direct involvement(Jeff==>Contrast) with a co-founder and business
partner (Dave ==>Aspect Security) is making false claims using a DHS funded
project through OWASP?

I'm going to provide some of the link media around the misuse using false
claims about the capabilities of an OWASP  project created with DHS funding
😕

*Judge by yourself .Read. Research. Realise that we will lose sponsors with
this kind of projects,including DHS. I hope I'm not the only one seeing the
damage. Hope you wake up and take action.*

*False Claims promoting false information damaging other Vendors like
Coverity, Veracode and other Open Source tools including ZAP, FindBugs
and the SWAMP that supports many SAST/DAST open source tools*
