Smile Woodmann Archive

As you know, Woodmanns forum is frozen. Last week, I forgot to download the latest/last archives of Woodmann in these 2 topics:
http://www.woodmann.com/forum/showthread.php?15712-So-*ahem*-where-can-I-download-Archives-of-the-Forum
http://www.woodmann.com/forum/showthread.php?15713-Updated-searchable-CHM-file-of-Forum-archives
and now they're gone. Could someone give us a mirror of them ?
Thank you.

It seems that Woodmann forum administrators see my request, they reopen the forum and make the archive available now:

These links are dead, any chance for a refresh of the torrents? I managed to find the 'stuff' torrent file elsewhere, but it was dead.

Also, if anyone knows what happened to the woodmann forums, I'd be interested to know. It sounds like they shutdown due to hosting costs.

Its sad to see that the RCE Woodmann site is down

If hosting was the problem as to why they shutdown, I would be willing to see if I can fund or look for alternatives for it to be up again.

Anyone willing to work towards bringing this site up please PM me .

I am not a very rich man but I sure do not want a such a treasure-trove of RCE knowledge to go down

I do know that its not very active these days, but all the same I believe that sites like them should be preserved. at least for their historical value if not for anything else !

I have an archive of +Fravia's Searchlores site, but not the Woodmann forum. I'd be willing to help out where I can. Is anyone else looking for the files?

NO @Lowtec :

I do have all the archives, including the huge archives of the Woodman (those torrents). I am not looking for them ...

In fact, I have many of the original Fravia's Posts from 1997 or so, in my collection as at that time, the Woodmann site and the EXETOOLS sites were the only sites to turn to, for any decent RCE material

What I am trying to so is to keep the Woodmann site UP, especially "Collaborative RCE Tool Libarary" section, which is in my opinion, a priceless treasure that should be preserved for eternity !

In other words, am looking at possibilities of me possibly taking responsibility for the hosting etc (if necessary)..

In my opinion, to avoid takedowns by anyone calling it an "illegal" collection of tools, I would need to put up a lot of disclaimers and the required warnings (for example, need to state for many of the tools that they are intended for research purposes bla, bla bla and also may re-word some of the descriptions so that the "intended use" of the tool(s) would not appear to be encouraging illegal use.

Just a start.. A LOT of work would need to be done if at all I am also allowed to take part in the restoration, but even if it takes a bit of time, I wish that it can be done ...

Cheers

@TechLord, Great to hear! I'm glad the files are still around. Do you (or anyone else) know who ran the Woodmann forum previously? It might be best to ask for their blessing before moving forward with recreating the site and standing on the shoulders of that community's work.

That being said, I would love to see the Woodmann site return! I think that there is great value in actively maintaining the pages, including the one you mentioned.

I don't think any argument can be made about tools being illegal in most free countries. After all, IDA and others sell their tools as commercial products with no concern. Knowledge for knowledge's sake is perfectly fine. The problem arises when discussing illegal activities such as theft of software and copyright infringement. Reversing is not a crime!

Another example, malware researchers are providing active malicious samples for sharing, then I don't see why some tools should pose a problem. Some may disagree, they don't have to visit that web site.

No, I am of course not "re-creating" that site or anything. If and only if the original owners of the forum(s) are interested, then only will I be moving forward with this proposal.

It doesn't make any sense for me to create another mirror without coordinating with the original founders first !

Just thought that I should clarify so that anyone reading this would be clear regarding my intentions

Our main concern here is that the site should be kept up and running as soon as possible and for as long as possible ...

Cheers
