OSVDB: FIN

As of today, a decision has been made to shut down the Open Sourced Vulnerability Database (OSVDB), and will not return. We are not looking for anyone to offer assistance at this point, and it will not be resurrected in its previous form.This was not an easy decision, and several of us struggled for well over ten years trying to make it work at great personal expense. The industry simply did not want to contribute and support such an effort. The OSVDB blog will continue to be a place for providing commentary on all things related to the vulnerability world.

  1. Sad news, thanks for all your work Jericho!

  2. Any plans to open-source the database and to try make a community project out of it?

    Would be pretty awesome to see the data as a torrent or the project’s implementation on github!

    I hope that you guys stay as awesome as you are and that you never give up trying!

    1. Remember, it started out as a community project and we struggled to make that model work. It simply did not for us. After almost ten years, we decided it wasn’t worth pursuing any longer.

  3. It’s sad to hear this and definitely a loss. Some more insight on the matter would be highly appreciated.
