First of all, thank you guys very much for OWASP! I'm a long time fan of
OWASP and feel that it is a positive driving force in the global security

Unfortunately it has come to my attention that one of OWASP's most vocal
representatives, Christian Heinrich (
is not acting in the best interests of the OWASP organization. Christian is
the project lead for the OWASP Google Hacking project. For the last two
years Christian has extensively presented at high profile computer security
conferences across the globe on the Google Hacking project. This exposure
has generated a great deal of interest in the OWASP project and particularly
the project source code.For some reason Christian appears to be
uncooperative and is refusing to open source the project code after several
requests for the source code were made. Please see the OWASP Google Hacking
project mailing list for more information on these requests (

Now I might be getting my wires crossed, but I thought OWASP projects are
suppose to be transparent, open source, and available to security
professionals wishing to improve application security, particularly a
high-profile project like Google Hacking which has received a great deal of
exposure. Please guys, is there any chance you could convince Christian to
provide the source code? I would deeply appreciate it and so would many
other security professionals.

Thank you,
Steven Steggles
