We're a movement dedicated to the eradication of full-disclosure.
We stand at the cusp of a renaissance. A freely communicating humanity is closer to unity and harmony than ever before. Never before have ideas and knowledge traveled so rapidly. If not for the Internet, little would be known about the atrocities our government attempts to commit in secret. All the American people would be able to read is the party line off of cable television. With a morally bankrupt media, the Internet is the key to any sort of democratic resistance. Thanks to the Internet, we may view photos of American caskets, wounded Iraqis, and internal government memos. The priveledge of viewing and knowing these things is easily lost. We approach the final hour of the free Internet. As I write, forces within our society are beginning to impose control and restriction onto it. If these forces are not turned back, I know that within a decade that the free world’s Internet will be a mix of cable television and the supressed Chinese Internet. As a beggar, I present myself with the humility that my lowly position deserves. My plea is simple: stop publishing your vulnerabilities. We will need them.

I have no idea what imageshack has done to upset these folks. For all I know, this could be their way of introducing themselves to the rest of us.
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and outdated / broken services.
