From Dark Reading:

"If you're trying to find or figure out a nasty bit of malware in your IT environment, your job may have just gotten a lot easier.

A pair of independent researchers earlier this week launched Offensive Computing, an open-source search engine that contains information and analysis on some 40,000 hostile files and exploits from around the security industry.

The search engine, which was developed under the auspices of the Cult of the Dead Cow (a longstanding Black Hat forum) was unveiled on Wednesday. The idea, according to a co-founder who goes by the name Valsmith, is to provide a single source where security researchers can go to find a particular exploit, download it, and defuse it."
