We have launched some new data collection projects relatively recently in addition to the original DShield project. What happens to all that data being collected? When there appears to be enough data to publicly release, the reports will likely be linked to from our Reports page at You can get there by clicking Data/Reports or its sub-menu Summary Page on the top-right menu. We've highlighted some of these projects in past Features but let's list them all out here.
