Final Update: Crisis averted, Milw0rm is still up and functioning.
Looks like Milw0rm is calling it a night. Haven’ t been able to get any official word as the site is unavailable. As the site is now unavailable it’s hard to tell what happened, but an ISC diary has this message from the site:
Well, this is my goodbye header for milw0rm. I wish I had the time I did in the past to post exploits, I just don’t :(. For the past 3 months I have actually done a pretty crappy job of getting peoples work out fast enough to be proud of, 0 to 72 hours (taking off weekends) isn’t fair to the authors on this site. I appreciate and thank everyone for their support in the past.
Be safe, /str0ke
Always a shame when a big player in the infosec community closes it’s doors. My thanks to all those how contributed and ran the site when it was a going concern; and if anyone has a recent mirror, I’d appreciate a copy, mines a little dated :'(

Looks like the fat lady may not be singing for Milw0rm just yet, Str0ke post this on Twitter:
I have talked with a few friends and I’ll be handing the site over so a group of people can add exploits / other things to the site. Hopefully it will be a new good start
Plus Dale Pearson of Security Active pointed me in the direction of splo.it, which is currently posting nothing but a farewell to Milw0rm. Given the (rather cool) URL it may become Milw0rm’s spiritual successor.
This keeps on going, Milworm came back and then died under the load of people trying to grab an upto date archive (ISC Diary). Until/if Milw0rm comes back for good you can get a copy of the July archive via Security Database Tools Watch
