The truth about AntiCode From www.anticode.com: AntiCode has finally arrived! Representing one of the most comprehensive archives of files written by hackers and crackers today. The archive itself is updated on a daily basis, with new files being added all the time. When it comes to the cracker tools and exploit archives, AntiCode.com is the only one you'll ever need! The truth: AntiCode represents a passing effort to amass vulnerabilities in a supposed 'complete' database. The code found in the AntiCode database appears to be taken from various public databases that did most of the footwork for AntiOnline. The sum of the code in the AntiCode archive is less than ONE THIRD of the known exploits populating most of the better bug databases out there today. Duplicates: Entries like "pcnfsd.tgz" can be found under HPUX, Solaris 2.5.1, Solaris 2.6, Solaris 2.7, Solaris x86 etc. Solaris 2.5.1, 2.6, and 2.7 share many of the same exploits. t3.c, t4.c, chkperm.txt, ttdb.c, and others can be found on multiple Solaris pages. Precompiled: In many cases AntiCode offers precompiled bins. In some cases, this is next to the source code (making it appear as if they have more code than they do. In some cases AntiCode does not provide you with exploit code. They provide you with a precompiled binary only. It is expected that you run this on your system, not knowing what the program really does. Where did AntiCode get it? Who wrote it? Why didn't they include source code? A good example of this is the Solaris 2.4 "statd.compiled" program. Conclusion: AntiCode's claim of being "the only one you'll ever need" is severely lacking. Offering less than a third of known exploits, forcing you to blindly trust precompiled programs (a security no-no) and duplicating entries to give it the appearance it is bigger than it is.. this archive is not worth the time.
