What after been hacked?

Hi all,

my site has been hacked. Due to a negligence of the hacker I know exactly what he did, so I cleaned the system and now it's ok.
But, I would like to know if there is something that I could do to help others .
Are there any place or site where could I send the information that I have obtained? I have even the toolkit that the hacker used to infect my system.

Thanks a lot!

(excuse my english)

Don't count on that...

If you want to be sure you're still relatively clean.

Run rkhunter and chkrootkit.

I think the official advice though will be to reinstall your operating system. It is the only way to be 100% sure.
