Security Tracker Closes it's doors in 2018
Great read thank you for it. On the 8th slide you have Security Tracker. I used this source a great deal. They have ceased on Tracking and Notifying on vulnerabilities as of the end of 2018. Just an FYI. This was their statement on the matter.  

 

"SecurityTracker - Dec 31 2018

https://www.securitytracker.com

 In November 2018, SecurityTracker discontinued delivery of our free SecurityTracker alerts. We have enjoyed providing the community with nearly 18 years of continued service.

 SecurityTracker public archives are available on our web site from April 2001 - November 2018."
