I often need to assess vulnerabilities relating to
a) OS (Windows, Redhat Linux & a bit of Solaris x86) &
b) MS Products (Sharepoint, IIS, clustering, .Net Framework, HL7, SQL etc),
c) VMWare products (cloud environment, ESXi, vCenter, vCloud  Director, vShield etc) & 

their relevance/risk level/applicability & the patches/fixes/workarounds needed
in our cloud.  I have to complete the assessments within 3-6 hours.

What are some of the active mailing lists & forums that cover
these topics  that I can raise clarifications & get good & fast
responses?  

Pls indicate those where the responses are publicly viewable & those
that are not.

I may raise clarifications relating to malicious Content issues (iVPN-1
NGX R62),  cross-site scripting, Tipping Point IPS/IDS scanning/
signatures, antivirus (TrendMicro that does deep scans) & various
PenTests / scanning.

One large security forum is governmentsecurity.org.   Go to the site below:

http://www.governmentsecurity.org/forum/

Also, go to ZDNet and sign up for a selection of newsletters. They often cover security issues and keeps readers apprised of security patches coming up.

Less so, but still valuable is Information Week Daily.

These are most of the resources I check daily or have a subscription to. Slashdot, ArsTechnica and many AV blogs are useful as well
