Astalavista Hacked and Torn apart

Earlier today- Altavista, website for ’security professionals’ (read: mostly scriptkiddies) Has been targeted and hacked, well- not only were they hacked, all exploits and details are made public on their site. http://astalavista.com and they were torn apart. I suspect it will not remain up for long so i’ve included the  log of the hack at the bottom.

It is as an thrilling read as any good suspence novell. As gmazzola commented on hackernews :  ”It’s rather similar to the urge to rubberneck at a car crash: it’s both horrific and exciting at the same time.”

From the log;

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servers), and they charge you $6.66 per months to access a dead forum with a directory filled with public releases and outdated / broken services.
