Opensc.ws Down

Opensc.ws merupakan salah satu forum underground tempat berkumpulnya para blackhat dan whitehat. Blackhat umumnya berkumpul pada forum tersebut untuk melakukan publikasi dan penjualan crimeware, mereka menawarkan software-software berbahaya dengan harga tertentu, diantaranya exploit pack, bot, trojan, keylogger, crypter, dsb.

Opensc.ws sejak 24 Februari 2010 statusnya down, berdasarkan beragam informasi sang administrator (lttcoder) sedang mengusahakan pemindahan server hosting Opensc.ws ke negara lain karena Opensc.ws berada dalam investigasi penegak hukum setempat (holand), dan hosting tempat opensc.ws sebelumnya tidak bisa melanjutkan untuk memberikan layanan hosting pada Opensc.ws (LeaseWeb).

Berikut ini update terakhir mengenai Opensc.ws beserta email dari pihak hosting mereka,

Quote

Thanks for inquiring about opensc.ws. As you know the website
distributes malware source code and executables, and also included
a marketplace for botnets, both activities are against Dutch Law (via
the Cybercrime treaty) and against our AUP and TOS.

As the website opensc.ws was under investigation by local authorities,
we choose to not close it down as to not hamper their investigations.
These investigations have since been concluded so we have said
goodbye to this client. The website should not be available from the
LeaseWeb AS anymore.

Kind regards,

Alex de Joode

Opensc.ws bukan saja berguna bagi para blackhat, namun juga sangat berguna bagi komunitas whitehat/researcher. Karena melalui forum tersebut terkuak beragam informasi serta software yang dapat dianalisis oleh para researcher untuk kemudian dipublikasi mengenai metode-metode blackhat dalam membuat crimeware tersebut.
