Anonymous claimed to have obtained “a decade’s worth of data” from Epik, a web host favored by the far-right. Epik is a domain registrar and web services provider known to serve right-wing clients.
Epik denied the leak
Epik released an announcement on an altered knowledge base, as seen in an archived copy:
A group of kids calling themselves ‘Anonymous’, whom we’ve never heard of, said they manage[d] to get a hold of, well, honestly, all our data, and then released it. They claim it included all the user data. All of it. All usernames, passwords, e-mails, support queries, breaching all anonymization service[s] we have. Of course it’s not true. We’re not so stupid we’d allow that to happen.hey claim it included all the user data. All of it. All usernames, passwords, e-mails, support queries, breaching all anonymization services we have. Of course, it’s not true. We’re not so stupid we’d allow that to happen.”
While Epic denied the leak, Anonymus gave detail about the leak to mock the company’s denial of the breach. The data is being widely shared online. Whistleblower site DDoSecrets is also sharing the data. The hack includes:
- All area purchases
- All area transfers in/out
- All whois historical past, unredacted
- All DNS modifications
- All electronic mail forwards, catch-alls, and many others
- Fee historical past (no bank card knowledge, do not get excited, FBI, we’re not in that recreation)
- Account credentials for all Epik clients, internet hosting, Anonymize VPN, and so forth Epik inside methods, servers Epik’s GoDaddy logins
Epic declared itself as a protector of “lawful free speech,” hosting platforms like Patriots. win (dropped by Reddit), Parler (dropped by AWS).
