HostExploit is a community-driven organisation dedicated to the research of cybercrime, with a focus on hosts and registrars.
HostExploit is edited by Jart Armin – world-renowned investigator, analyst and writer on cybercrime and internet security. However, much of the research is provided by the wider community. All those involved are respected Internet professionals within the areas of web hosting, server management, DNS, internet security, reverse engineering and traffic analysis.
HostExploit was created as an open resource for those who wish to reduce and prevent cybercrime, its effects and causes, and assist in wider awareness and education. Through this top-down approach, law enforcement, CERTs, ISPs, telecommunications, web hosting companies and, finally, webmasters and end users are better informed.
