Hello everyone,

It is with sadness and excitement that I am writing this email.  After almost six years of running the BASE project, I have to move on to other responsibilities.  My focus has shifted over the last few years towards red-team tools and activities.  This is shown with the other projects I am running; SamuraiWTF, Laudanum and Yokoso as well as the Web Application Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking class I author for SANS.  I have really enjoyed the time I have spent on the BASE project and am glad to have met all of you.  I will remain around to provide what help I can, but will not be taking an active role in the project.

My excitement comes from being able to introduce Will Urbanski.  Will Urbanski is a Security Analyst with the Virginia Tech IT Security Office and Lab. He has a strong background in web application development and has contributed to a number of open source projects. Will is looking forward to working with other BASE contributors and building upon the strong foundation provided.

Will and I will be working together to transition the project.  I hope that you all welcome Will as I know you will and help him move the BASE project towards the great project we all know it can be.

Thank you!
