Hans Van Eeghen sent out an e-mail entitled ‘Security Breach at Comic-Con'. Below is the content of the e-mail I received.
ATTENTION ALL RECRUITS
RE: SECURITY BREACH AT COMIC-CON 2008
As many of you may be aware there have been a number of security breaches in recent days related to the nature of the Dharma Initiative's latest research.
Apart from the leak of a sensitive internal communication there was also the unauthorized release of confidential video documentation during a sponsored panel discussion with the makers of the TV show "LOST" at Comic-Con 2008 in San Diego. Consequently, the person responsible for this breach, a promising recruit by the name of Dan Bronson, has been expelled from the volunteer program and had his Dharma Initiative membership permanently revoked.
Furthermore, the Dharma Initiative has withdrawn their sponsorship from "LOST".
The Dharma Initiative must stress that the video material leaked at Comic-Con 2008 was viewed entirely out of context. Furthermore, the way in which the material was presented utterly distorted its significance and credibility as scientific data.
The Dharma Initiative is extremely disappointed with this outcome and has ordered a security audit of all departments. As part of this audit the DharmaWantsYou recruiting website will undergo a security upgrade in the next few days.
Upon completion of this upgrade a date will be announced for the official commencement of Volunteer Assessments.
All recruits are reminded that the unauthorized release of confidential information pertaining to the details of your activities within the Dharma Initiative will result in instant dismissal from the volunteer program.

Makes me wonder what became of Dan Bronson! As ever, if you go to the main website version of the e-mail and view the source code, there’s a little message tucked away in there.
!-- Good luck my old friend Hans –
Not much of a message really, with no clue as to who sent it. I would have to assume it was Ruckus Guy. Is Ruckus Guy and Dan Bronson the same person? It seems likely, but is not yet confirmed.
I’m looking forward to when the test dates get announced and I can get cracking with my recruitment process. . .
