It was originally designed by someone with the handle 'mobman'. No development has occurred in several years and the official website (http://www.subseven.org) was updated recently announcing a new version that is scheduled for release on Feb. 28th, 2010. The Sub7 project was dormant for over 6 years until its return in July 2009 when mobman and fc decided to revive the project, marking 10 years after its original creation in 1999. In October 2009 mobman informed fc and the sub7crew via IRC that due to working and going to college full time that he will not be able to help with the current development of Sub7.

Among Sub7's capabilities are complete file system access and real-time keystroke logging. The latter capability makes it possible for Sub7 to be used to steal passwords and credit card information. It also installs itself into the WIN.INI file and the "run" key of the Windows Registry, in addition to adding a "runner" to the Windows Shell.

26.March 2010 subseven.org and subcrew.org were hacked and defaced by a hacker named -Punk-. The defacement information was put online on a opensource forum http://www.opensc.ws/off-topic/9907-subseven-org-hacked-punk.html. -Punk-, the hacker behind the defacement, stated that he and many others were not happy about the sudden announcement that the Sub7 will charge $15 to have access to the official Sub7 community forums.

On 1. April 2010, 5 days after the website of subseven.org was defaced, the Sub7 team announced on their website that the project has been shut down, due to the incident with the hacker -Punk-. The Sub7 team announced that the hacker has stolen the source code and deleted all the projects database. First it was believed to be an april fools joke, but after the website did not get back online days later and following the aggressive argumentation in an open source forum, it turned out that this was not an april fools joke.


Last News from the Sub7 team:

1/4/2010 - SubSeven Is No More The SubSeven Project has come to an end due to a compromise by a group called -PuNk-. They stole the source code and deleted all of our website and project databases. Because of this we have decided to close SubSeven and not reopen the project ever again. It was fun while it lasted. In case any of you want to speak to -PuNk- their email address they left behind is: XXXXXXXX (edited for privacy purpose) - I suggest you contact them if you have any complaints. His last known IP address was: XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX (edited for privacy purpose) in case you want to report him to the authorities. We have already reported the case. You can read about the compromise here. cya

Haha, go figure.  It was shut down.
