5th November 1993: The Bugtraq mailing list was created by Scott Chasin.
In 1995 it became the property of SecurityFocus, in 2002 Symantec acquired SecurityFocus, and the last message was posted to the list on February 25th, 2020, with no explanation from Symantec. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bugtraq
13th November 2012: John McAfee went into hiding because his neighbor Gregory Faull was found dead from a gunshot the day before. Belize police wanted McAfee to come in for questioning, but McAfee stated the police were “out to get him”.
