Information Security Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for Information security professionals. It's 100% free, no registration required.

What is the best place to go for security news? I am looking for everything from news updates to editorials to guides and research. Anywhere considered more reliable or particularly hard-hitting?

Also I am looking for good Twitter feeds!

For a site I would recommend the SANS Internet Storm Center at https://isc.sans.edu/.

I find the most useful for news for me is a twitter list of security professionals and researchers such as.

You can probably find other lists of security related twitter users that would be worthwhile to follow.

http://security.didici.cc/ is all I use nowadays. Not a source per se - it's a news aggregator, but includes many high quality news sources, as well as podcasts, videos, events, CVEs and Tweets (as well as stackexchange posts - which is where I found your question).

Full disclosure: I'm the author of the site.

Thank you, that is very good! Can you make links become clickable in twitter page? –  Amir May 23 '13 at 1:02

Here's the Security section from my RSS reader, in the form of the OPML file so you can read it directly into yours. It's oriented to news about latest exploits on the 'user level', i.e. what you can encounter 'out there'.

Or edit the individual URLs out...

I can also post the Security folder from my browser bookmarks (with all subfolders) but that's huge. It's mostly URLs for guides and tutorials and not news.

Man, some of those haven't been updated in years. Thanks for the dump though. –  Steel City Hacker May 23 '13 at 16:46
    
Yeah, I should clean 'm out... –  Jan Doggen May 23 '13 at 18:24

Alright. So they aren't all strictly hacking:

http://www.scmagazine.com.au/News/

http://thehackernews.com/

http://www.ehackingnews.com/

https://news.ycombinator.com/

I don't use twitter, but occasionally i read The Jester's twitter feed, cause frankly, its pretty bad-ass from time to time.
