    What has happended to the XB machine I cannot find where the download link is,and it would seem that the xerobank website has vanished what happended to it?If anyone has a iso file of the xb machine would you kindly distribute it somewhere like maybe sourceforge?

    the reason why I want it so bad is because I heard it had portable encrypted file storage,and based on a modified Gentoo Linux distribution,along with the native implementation of a Tor onion routing for internet connectivity and other encryption and privacy tools,The details and transactions inside each xB Machine account were protected with 256-bit AES encryption. The software also had a self-destruct sequence for eliminating any traces that a user may have left behind on the drivespace after using xB Machine.

    He is still showing up in Youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l6GwUFVlCKg. That was from March 2013, so he is still around. I remember quite some time back reading about him and the service. The further I got into reading, the less I wanted to have any dealings with the service. That said, what is printed and what is fact aren't always the same.

    That's from DEFCON 15, which was years ago.

    Well yea theres always a chance everything I read can all be a lie,I know that but I just wanted to put the XB machine to the test such as pentesting it,for educational purposes of course,btw thanks for the video.Although mirmir says "That's from DEFCON 15, which was years ago."

    Whoops! :oops: :D I don't really know much about these things, so I'm trying to learn. Other than that link however, there indeed doesn't seem to be very much recent information on the gentleman.
