Last night one of our members emailed the cryptoparty mailing list to say that the cryptoparty.org website was unexpectedly down. The site currently displays the text "Suspended due to spam."
It is a shame that people looking forward to attend cryptoparties this week who had publicised links to the website for their events will find that they are now broken.
Several members from the community, including myself, periodically scraped the cryptoparty.org website in order to ensure that everyone's contributions were not lost. My scrape was made with:
