How often do I say "send us a note on our contact form" and I've never detailed the page in a feature!? This is a good time to mention, if you have any aspect of the site you would like reviewed or explained in more detail, please feel free to send us a note on our contact form at Yup, just did that again! :>

There are many reasons, ways and places to contact the Internet Storm Center. Whether you have a general security question, want to let us know about a patch release, want to discuss current events with security folk, find a glitch in the matrix or have a packet capture you'd like analyzed, the Contact Us page at is the place to go.


The top paragraph explains the usefulness of the DShield Discussion List for certain topics. The groups' messages are moderated and generally release within a few minutes to a few hours of submitting and you can expect a response just as quick.

SSL Version -

The first sub navigation link forwards you to an SSL encrypted version of the page. Note that the site should now automatically default to https but this is still available just in case.

Submit Logs -

Log Submissions were detailed in our very first Feature Diary at

Report Site Bug -

In addition to the contact form detailed below, we check the DShield sourceforge project page regularly. You can submit bugs, feature requests, and support requests. We are always working on improving the site. Be sure and include your debug info along with submissions.
