If you have a few extra bucks, you might consider donating a couple of them to these guys (http://new.remote-exploit.org/). They have some great tools and tutorials (even videos!). Whax (formerly whoppix) and Auditor are two of the best security live CDs, and right now they are working on combining them into “backtrack”.
Google decided that the site did not meet the terms of service requirements for adsense because it allegedly contains “Hacking/cracking content”, and so they are losing some ad revenue that would normally support their hosting. Hopefully this won’t become a trend that could indirectly affect many security sites that rely on this type of funding. This is another (small) example of how powerful Google is starting to become. Hopefully they’ll stick to their “Don’t be evil” policy.
