June 19, 2015 - "Secunia just announced on a forum post* that they will no longer provide public access to advisories newer than 9 months. According to Secunia they, "frequently encounter organizations engaged in wrongful use of Secunia Advisories" and that VIM customers, "have full access to all advisories." While Secunia is under no obligation to provide their aggregated vulnerabilities they've been doing it for over 10 years. The information they provide is primarily from public sources."

19th Jun, 2015 - "We have decided to make advisories more recent than nine months unavailable on secunia.com . The decision was made to avoid abuse of the advisories for commercial use, and because we frequently encounter organizations engaged in wrongful use of Secunia Advisories. Our advisories are made available for personal use only, and commercial use is prohibited.
Users who wish to make commercial use of our vulnerability intelligence must subscribe to our vulnerability management solution, the Secunia Vulnerability Intelligence Manager (Secunia VIM: - http://secunia.com/v...y_intelligence/). Users of the Secunia VIM have full access to all advisories and are able to analyse all the latest advisories in chronological order as well as proactive alerting the moment they have been released. Private users who have created a Secunia community profile ( http://secunia.com/community/profile/ ), can access advisories less than 9 months old using the search engine ( http://secunia.com/c...isories/search/ ). We are aware that the search on the community pages is not working optimally and are working to fix that shortly.
Stay Secure,
Kasper Lindgaard, Director of Research and Security"
