Please explain to me clearly. I always find it difficult to know more about USENET groups and tired reading FAQ about USENET groups.

You need to have a news reader program on your system to read the USENET news. An example of such a program is Microsoft Outlook Express (not Microsoft Outlook). This is a NNTP client and a news reader. Then you need to connect to an NNTP server (There are thousands of them, search for some of them). When you connect to one of the servers, it will show you which all USENET groups it can support. Your alt.security will be there most probably. And then you can use it to read the news.

I know I am not sufficiently clear but right now I do not have more time to write about it.
Then there are some servers which allows only reading but not posting whereas some are there which allows both. This whole thing is actually very simple but takes a while to understand.

The easier solution is go to groups.google.com and navigate to alt.security and read it online.

Hope it helps.
