I just discovered that the content for www.ethicalhacker.net is no longer available. The Wayback Machine show it disappeared sometime between the last weeks of February and May. I sent a query to their Twitter account. I was wondering if anyone at TE knew of their situation.

    Did a bit of research....not sure what is going on. His linked-in account appears to be active https://www.linkedin.com/in/ddonzal/detail/recent-activity/. Until I saw that I thought he may have died sometime between 6 months and a year ago. Most of the domains that he has are now parked domains for 1and1 including the other domain listed on ethicalhacker.net.

    I have a piece of software that I developed which will rip a site from way back machine and get it ready to be hosted elsewhere.

    Want it done?

    Just because a website is taken down, doesn't mean the creator of the content automatically loses their copyright protection as author of the content.

    Nice find. My home page has been the Sans Storm Center for the past few months. While Sans has an agenda to sell training, the content is great.

    I see this going well for both ethicalhacker.net and eLearnSecurity.

    I'm a big fan of eLS, but I had a bad experience with their beta "eco system". I even bought the new PTX exam!

    Off topic, but good luck on your LFCS exam tomorrow!

    Just saw the news, EH net has needed some work for quite a while, I think this is an opportunity for it to return, if it does in the same way, I think it's great. I used to get all kinds of training for free from there.

    I am ecstatic it didn't end up in EC Council's hands.
