This is partially PC-related but more for the Scene in general.  I had someone reach out to me recently asking if I knew of any working HCU+ sites.  After a bit of Googling, I found one and passed it on.  He was looking to learn and we briefly discussed how knowledge from "our days" has been slowly disappearing from the net.  A great example is Fravia's site, which has been down for many years after his passing.  I was able to find a copy of one of his mirrors and have been hosting that on my personal site.  I'd like to propose that if you have something like tutorials or any form of knowledge that should be preserved, post it somewhere.  Or share here so someone else can share?

So many of the "go to here to learn" sites are gone, and it's up to us to preserve and share as much as we can for the next generation to learn.

Re: Knowledge preservation for posterity

I've been thinking the same thing for quite a long time now; it's nowhere near the way it used to be in terms of finding good reverse-engineering info on more modern/current protections, etc.

You'll find a few semi-hidden forums with a relatively small group of people moderately sharing info and help, but nothing at all like the old "school" days where people were cracking and sharing their knowledge like it was some sort of literal virtual university of sorts. I wish there was as much info back when I started as I was when I left (when I started there were mostly just ancient tutorials by +ORC, and I never really read too many during the whole +HCU era, but it was awesome at the time knowing how it was very active and ongoing).

I don't have the time anymore (or interest tbh) to roll up the sleeves like I used to and figure it all out on my own step by step from scratch, and when I occasionally tear into something for personal reasons I find the info on any of the newer protections and tools scarce, unlike the good old days, so having a revival like that would be Thumbs Up

If anyone ever wants to store older stuff like that here, or share any new interesting stuff along the lines, it's more than welcome.



Shhh.. dont tell anyone, but we also have a private forum area with the really good stuff, see?

Re: Knowledge preservation for posterity

I just now came across these 2 sites/pages; if you nav up in the breadcrumb trail you can glean some things:

yurichev.com/mirrors/amateur_crypto_examples_from_Fravia/hds-en.html

xoomer.virgilio.it/pinc0pall/crktute/FTPVoyager.htm

As always, "grab em while they're still there", we all know how quick these things drop off the internet into obscurity.
