Welcome to UGN Security

Dare To Take The Road to Knowledge, Power and Information!

We where founded in 1996 on the principle of allowing open access to all types of information and allowing our users to decide what they deem appropriate. Unfortunately, these days, little pesky things like "laws" mean that we have to put some small restrictions on what data travels through our servers, but we still strive to be a great resource for system security information on the internet.

UGN Security has survived on user donations since our inception in 1996; advertisements don't fully pay for server maintenance and licensing. We ask that all users consider making a donation if possible.
