Alerts mailing list
The Bitcoin Protocol_specification supports the broadcast of Alerts. An unofficial email relay is now provided that rebroadcasts these block chain alerts via subscription to https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/bitcoin-unofficial-alerts. Alternatively, to subscribe via email send an email to [].
If you receive an alert you should immediately verify it is official by running "bitcoind getinfo", go to http://www.bitcoin.org to find out more details concerning the alert, or join the #bitcoin IRC channel on freenode.
