For those who don't know of Astalavista, it was a popular website for "hackers" with relatively low-quality content. It started in 1994, and was one of the first search engines for computer security information. It hosted software exploits, and quickly degenerated into a forum for sharing software cracks, spyware, and virii.
Yes man, the historical security group ASTALAVISTA has been destroyed by anti-sec group. I really didn't know who anti-sec group was, but they're truly amazing. I started my personal security carrier in sites such as ASTALAVISTA where security lovers meet each others sharing information and experiences, but sincerely I don't miss the ASTALAVISTA community. According to anti-sec group :
Why has Astalavista been targeted?
Other than the fact that they are not doing any of this for the "community" but
for the money, they spread exploits for kids, claim to be a security community
(with no real sense of security on their own servers), and they charge you $6.66
per months to access a dead forum with a directory filled with public releases
and outdated / broken services.
