Community development archives now available
ITHACA, N.Y. (6/6/08)--The archives of Community Development Banking-L (CDB-L) List--an active free ongoing e-mail discussion resource that serves community development practitioners, including credit unions, is available. It was shut down due to a hacking attack in November. The attack was on the archive, not the list itself, Bill Myers, list moderator, told News Now. The archive uses a free bulletin board system, called PHP. “The software hadn’t been updated in years, and known PHP vulnerabilities were exploited on the CDB-L site in an attempt to take over the server,” Myers said. To remedy the problem, the site was brought down. Now the most up-to-date version of the PHP software has been deployed, hosted with an active partner--Governance & Accountability Institute Inc., Myers explained. The list has served community development practitioners since 1994 with no particular emphasis on type or subtype, Myers said. CDB-L has about 3,200 subscribers from a variety of institutions, including credit unions, banks, loan funds, trade associations, regulators, researchers, and government and nonprofit advocates, he added. “Two staple topics are offerings and conferences,” Myers said. “Not unexpectedly, there was an active discussion this spring on housing and the mortgage crisis.”
