The truth about AntiCode


   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, 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.


   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.


   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.


   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.
