Bye milw0rm?

I saw a message from Jericho giving his goodbyes to str0ke, and had to see it for myself. Indeed:

Well, this is my goodbye header for milw0rm. I wish I had the time I did in the past to post exploits, I just don’t :( . For the past 3 months I have actually done a pretty crappy job of getting peoples work out fast enough to be proud of, 0 to 72 hours (taking off weekends) isn’t fair to the authors on this site. I appreciate and thank everyone for their support in the past.
Be safe, /str0ke

We all hope it’s just temporary and str0ke will bounce back. And  if that doesn’t happen, hopefully someone else will pick it up and continue. It’s a thankless job of tedious work but it gives “the good guys” a fighting chance by putting together in an organized manner things that are already know to the bad people out there.

Hopefully this is not a farewell, but if it is, milw0rm will be missed.

Readers: If you have suggestions for good exploit archives (other than this exploit archive, of course) that should go on the bookmark list where milw0rm was, please post in the comments below.

Update: Good news. As several of you noted, str0ke decided to keep on going. More information here.

Update 2: As of October 2009 they seem to be down again.

    @Andre – naturally Packetstorm. No doubt about that. Thanks for the other links – although I believe secwatch.org is not a public archive.

    It’s due to pressure from the FBI. It’s hosted in the USA, what did he think was going to happen?

  • Urgentguy

    What FBI ?
    milw0rms been running since so many years. Did FBI wake up today ?

  • anonymous

    Though milw0rm much better than hack.co.za :)

    Why would the FBI pressure milw0rm owners? It helps the industry more than it hurts, and that include govts.
