I suggest you mirror the list on usenet.
The sf vulnerablity db disappeared.
Hope your list does not disappear, but in case it does, at least for some time there will be a public usenet archive.

We have come under some pressure to delete part of the information from the message disclosing the Kerberos 4 vulnerability recently posted.

We would like to publicly announce our position in regards to the material within the Full Disclosure mailing list archives.

We strongly feel that:

1. The archives reflect the entire mail traffic of the
   list, which is composed of individual messages sent
by many different individuals. 2. The contents of these messages have become a matter of public record once they were distributed to both those who are subscribed to the mailing list, and mirrored by various sites who also archive the mailing list.

3. It would violate the editorial integrity of the archives and would also demonstrate a measure of editorial control over the content of the archives that we are not prepared to exercise.

4. That it is pointless to "delete a message" since
the message contents are already widely disseminated, cached, stored, and otherwise ingested worldwide.

To summarize, we are sorry that we cannot comply with
any requests to delete the message in question, or any
other for that matter.
