How do I submit a WHID Incident?If you have identified a possible WHID
candidate, please use of the following methods to notify the WHID project
1. Send an email to - owaspwhid_at_owasp.org
2. Send a tweet to @owaspwhid <https://twitter.com/owaspwhid>
3. Enter a link in the WHID Submittal Form

I will update the FAQ info with data about what constitutes a valid entry.
The key elements are -
1. Has to be a publicly referencable incident.  Need links to public news
stories, FCC documents, etcŠ
2. Must have a negative impact to the live web application.  All WHID
entries must have an Outcome (Downtime, Leakage of Data, Planting of
Malware, etcŠ).  We try to also designate Attack/Weakness data however it
may not be known.
