DoZ, a super moderator at hacker central security forums, has this to say about Astalavista:
Hi fellow users and astalavista admins. I want to ask one question, why you charge money for stuff that u steal from our site and claim it as your own? I spend tons of my bust hours uploading and it takes you two seconds to put it up on your site and make people pay some $ 30 for Hackers Center contents! I want all the people to boycott and only lamers spend money on that site for everything that’s from this site and FREE! I hope you at least tell your users were all this contents you upload comes from! We can’t Stop You but! We Can Tell The Truth and soon or later no one is going to visit your site! This is not first time, it’s just that I am tired of this Lamery! If you own blog please post this! Thank you for your time and keep visiting the only # 1 Hackers Portal on Net.
All the underlined are things from our site!
I don ‘t know what the deally is here, but charging anything for hacking info is EXTRA SUPER ASSHATERY. Now on top of that stealing other’s hacks and posting them as your own is just wrong, and possibly punishable by hacker retribution.
I NEVER post other’s hacks as my own, I always give credit. And of course I never ask for money. The whole point of this blog is to keep information FREE.
Astalavista, it looks like you have some questions to answer. What say ye admins? I am sure your fans NEED an explanation on this.
PS: Sup DoZ thanks for the tip. Feel free to post more evidence in the comments, or let me know where to find it.
