I know some gov't related groups block it, right Chris? But as they get to know us and start regularly using terms like ethical hacking and pen testing, they'll allow us through.  ;)

Yup, agree with the other guys..  I use websense at work and by default it blocks access to the 'hacking' category - which includes EH-Net :(

What a bunch of crap!  The internet as gross as it can be should be the final open source. So far for those that know how, we cant be blocked and that even includes China.  I think all true hackers have a little libertarian in them. I mean when it comes to government control.

We should petition Websense, that's a good idea... luckily, since I control the firewall here at work, I don't have a problem getting here ;D

Kev, I totally agree on the Libertarian comment.. good call. I remember back to when I didn't know what a proxy was yet, let alone how to use one, trying to figure out how to get around those darn school web filters :P

Yup the advantage of having more technical know-how than the teachers, I help set the filters up :D (and no, I didn't shoulder-surf whilst the teachers pecked the admin password at 1 character a minute, allowing me to add what I wanted. That would have been unethical ;) )

Will Ethical Hacker site is not blocked by Websense or Bluecoat here....

Looks like I can login and use it here at work!!!  Sweet, since I have been tasked as the new "Security Guru" and will most likely consult here for more info from time to time.

I wonder if I generated enough traffic to win the Mayy 2008 giveaway :)
