ModSecurity Has a New Home

As many of you already know, about a month ago Trustwave acquired Breach Security, the then owner and sponsor of the ModSecurity project. Trustwave's Spider Labs will now be leading the project. Within Spider Labs and the highly capable people there, ModSecurity will be able to thrive.

And so, it is with mixed feelings that I also announce that I am stepping down from the project. I have enjoyed working on ModSecurity with Breach for the past 3 1/2 years, but it is time for me to move on to another exciting project (more on that later). While I may be stepping down as a leader, I am not leaving, just changing roles. I plan to stay an active member of the community and to contribute where I can. I expect to see a lot of innovation from ModSecurity in the near future and I look forward to see where ModSecurity will go with all its new resources.

Cheers to ModSecurity's new home in Spider Labs and to a successful future!

P.S. -- I'll be around at Black Hat/DEFCON next week in Vegas if anyone wants to hook up.
