and http://rafb.net/paste/ before it was shut down
Here's an example I found on their recent pastes page:
Go play with the Theme dropdown.
The other ones may be prettier but Pastebin has mindshare.
Another I just saw was a keylog of someone changing their password after their Facebook account was flagged for suspicious activity. Obviously, they've got bigger problems.
Question: should I contact this person and tell them what happened?
(Thinking about it, it would be trivial to write a script that monitors for this kind of stuff, and e-mails the victim, or sends them a facebook message, explaining what happened. But, uh, seems like it might expose me to liability at worst, and angry reply emails at best.)
It's called botnet hunting for a reason. The thrill of the chase.
I'm really glad that I was 13 before the era where you could just go and get detailed instructions on every possible piece of knowledge, and before there were places like stackexchange where people scramble to answer your every question in seconds. Instead I had to spend hours days and weeks doing this stuff from scratch, and without that, I doubt if I'd be paying the rent with computers right now.
Sorry if this sounds a bit condesending, I'm just trying to help people get the maximum utility from their time skulking around in virtual alleyways chasing criminals. Surely a noble aim? ;)
Here is a description on what service pastebin provides: "Pastebin.com is the number one paste tool since 2002. Pastebin is a website where you can store text online for a set period of time."
It doesn't make pastebin abused just because some internet individual thinks it is only for interesting source code.
"just because some internet individual"
Your condescending tone implies undisclosed motives. I might be wrong, feel free to correct me.
Obviously, Pastebin works too.
So really, yeah if you already have local access you can pwn the box, but you have pretty much done that already.
Pastebin's owner seems to not mind automated tools using the site ( http://stackoverflow.com/questions/833887/pastebin-api , comment on question ), so the only solution I see is a "report public paste" feature. But that would be near useless against the volume of computer generated content created. And worse yet, the address that pasted it is just another victim, so there's little hope going against it.
Though I really hope I'm wrong, pastebin is a great website.

Here is the code: http://blog.kejsarmakten.se/all/software/2011/05/29/i2p-past...
While I haven't tested any of the examples myself, I'd assume they're subtly munged.
pastebin.com sucks. Use LodgeIt or Gist.
