Exploit repository Milw0rm has been shuttered. The site operator, who uses the online alias str0ke, said in a message Tuesday on the site -- which is no longer accessible -- that he didn't have enough time to analyze submissions, some of them zero-days, and post them in a timely manner. He said this was unfair to the code authors. Alternative exploit sites still in operation include Packet Storm, Security Forest, and Securiteam. — DK
