NEW OWASP Projects

http://cts.vresp.com/c/?TheOWASPFoundation/68b271a91a/4f163f6020/bd86c9fbc0 OWASP Vulnerable Web Applications Directory Project

The OWASP Vulnerable Web Applications Directory (VWAD) Project is a
comprehensive and well maintained registry of all known vulnerable
web applications currently available.  These vulnerable web
applications can be used by web developers, security auditors, and
penetration testers to put in practice their knowledge and skills
during training sessions (and especially afterwards), as well as to
test at any time the multiple hacking tools and offensive techniques
available, in preparation for their next real-world engagement.For
more information, please contact the project leaders, Simon Bennetts
- psiinon at gmail.com  and Raul Siles - raul at raulsiles.com .

New Project Releases

OWASP Mantra-OS, released their "Cannon" beta.  The virtual-core now
creates a complete sandbox.  It contains lxc, libvirt, kvm, libxen,
libmacho, and vzctl.  Additionally, the leaders are happy to report
that further development made with libdispatch, liblightning, and
libjit, makes it extreamly fast.
