Full Disclosure cerró el pasado 19 de Marzo de 2014.

John Cartwright, escribe una breve pero demoledora explicación, muy pesimista, en cuanto a toda la comunidad implicada en la seguridad informática.

Carta de cierre de Full Disclosure

En ella se hace énfasis en el gran cambio que ha sufrido una industria que jamás debió serlo. Explica que no existe un sentimiento de comunidad verdadero, que todo ha cambiado de forma negativa en el modo de usar la información publicada.
Además, el contexto legal actual, hace el mantenimiento del foro cada vez más dificil.

Aunque la lista “Full Disclosure” es mítica, ahora mismo no es el medio donde transcurre la acción en una Internet devastada por las redes sociales. Ha cambiado el lugar y momento de la transmisión de ese tipo.

Grupos tan de moda en la Red como Anonymous, además, dañan a estas comunidades de siempre, autoproclamándose hackers.
Existen miles de foros dedicados a hacer un negocio lucrativo de información importante y hacen, por lo tanto, que se difuminen las lineas que separan a “Full Disclosure” de la cyberdelincuencia.

Este es el comunicado de John Cartwright:

Hi

When Len and I created the Full-Disclosure list way back in July 2002,
we knew that we’d have our fair share of legal troubles along the way.
We were right. To date we’ve had all sorts of requests to delete
things, requests not to delete things, and a variety of legal threats
both valid or otherwise. However, I always assumed that the turning
point would be a sweeping request for large-scale deletion of
information that some vendor or other had taken exception to.

I never imagined that request might come from a researcher within the
‘community’ itself (and I use that word loosely in modern times). But
today, having spent a fair amount of time dealing with complaints from
a particular individual (who shall remain nameless) I realised that
I’m done. The list has had its fair share of trolling, flooding,
furry porn, fake exploits and DoS attacks over the years, but none of
those things really affected the integrity of the list itself.
However, taking a virtual hatchet to the list archives on the whim of
an individual just doesn’t feel right. That ‘one of our own’ would
undermine the efforts of the last 12 years is really the straw that
broke the camel’s back.

I’m not willing to fight this fight any longer. It’s getting harder
to operate an open forum in today’s legal climate, let alone a
security-related one. There is no honour amongst hackers any more.
There is no real community. There is precious little skill. The
entire security game is becoming more and more regulated. This is all
a sign of things to come, and a reflection on the sad state of an
industry that should never have become an industry.

I’m suspending service indefinitely. Thanks for playing.

Cheers
– John
