Stay classy, YCombinator.
The thought began, as many good things begin, in #trilema.
Users of the WOT, of V, and other systems where your cryptographic identity is wholly in your own hands1 live with a certain risk of “cryptographic death” – i.e. the compromise of one’s signing key. A conscientious user of public key crypto might keep the thought [...]
Phuctored SSH Public Keys to date.
Keys were obtained from a scan of the complete IPv4 space. We have gone approximately 20% of the way through the data set at the time of this writing.
Click on the IP addresses to view a key in Phuctor, or on the SSH hello string to view pertinent discussions.

The WWW of Brian Krebs, perhaps the second-most-worshiped1 patron saint to all English-speaking “computer security” charlatans — is sitting sadly offline today on account of a ~TB/sec DDOS flood.2
His titanic bandwidth, it turns out, was provided gratis by Akamai – spamatronicists par excellence and industrial-scale enablers of everything that makes the modern-day WWW a rancid [...]
Phuctor – rewritten and revved up on new hardware in April – is presently eating SSH RSA keys from a scan of the complete IPv4 space.
And, on occasion, breaking some.
And generating other laughs as well. In today’s server logs:

What’s that? A ‘Websense’ censortron control panel, [...]
Phuctor is back!
Now using Bernstein’s Algorithm (D. J. Bernstein. How to find smooth parts of integers.) The entire set is pairwise-GCD’d hourly.
Once upon a time (in August of ‘15, to be exact) I wrote a very simple versionatron called ‘V‘.
Edit: See also Ben Vulpes’s excellent introduction to V.
V is a carefully-designed poison against the scurrying little vermin who feed on the proverbial ‘fear, uncertainty, and doubt.’
For readers who are not in the little circle of folks [...]

What you see here is a very classic version of the GNU MPI (bignum) library.
It has been surgically removed from GnuPG 1.4.10, specifically as found at:

(8/16 Update: 113 moduli.)
Phuctor has been under lightweight but rather reliable DDOS in recent times, so here is a mirror of the list of 106 moduli broken up through the time of this writing.
Certain professional idiots have been bashing their heads against the wall in a futile effort to magic away the past. To them, [...]
