Disclaimer: I've used whitehats for quite a while. It's a nice handy-dandy
shopping center for info on various exploits and such. This is not an
endorsement, nor is it a slam. It's a statement of _fact_.
1) The Feds got Max. Now, there's no one to 'run' the site.
2) Now there's no updates.
3) Since Max was nailed on a 'computer crime' and since Sept. 11 things in
the computer crime arena have changed forever, it's going to be difficult for
him/someone to get Whitehats up to speed.
4) It can be mirrored, but it will not be _up to date_ mirror. You'd be
missing over 6 months of 'hax0rtime'. And yes, that's even faster than Dog
Short Version: If WhiteHats is down, don't sweat it. It wasn't the _ONLY_
reference for things. It was just one of the best.
Long Version: Chill. Wait until Max can get things going again. Or mirror
it yourself, and hope you've got the entire DB. :)
I suggest instead of everyone wanting to mirror a site that might be forced to
shutdown due to a whim of the Feds, that you build your own. :) C'mon, it's
not that hard! ;-) ( And, yes I am teasing--Sorta! :-)
Just trying to be a voice of reason....
