Alex Jones’ Infowars site hacked — 50,000-plus user’s info now available in digital underground

Published

on

Thousands of user accounts at the conservative site InfoWars have been hacked.

According to Motherboard, the Alex Jones-founded site gives paying subscribers access to extra stories, media and information. The accounts for those paid subscribers were hacked and the email addresses, usernames and their passwords are being offered on the digital underground.

An administrator at Databases.Land gave a copy of over 50,000 unique records to prove the hack was real and Vigilante.PW also lists a data dump of the InfoWars information.

Motherboard verified that the email addresses and usernames were real and the users of the emails admitted they were signed up to Infowars/PrisonPlanet.

The passwords were masked by a cryptographic algorithm known as MD5, which is notoriously weak and easy for hackers to break. It’s still unclear how much information beyond email, username and passwords have been obtained by the hackers.

The news comes on the same day that the FBI released information that election databases were also hacked in Arizona and Illinois.

“We have cross referenced the current dump versus our current db and it is data from an old breach that happened in 2012 and was dealt with at that time,” Buckley Hamman from Infowars told Motherboard in a statement.

Conservative attorney dismantles GOP arguments against impeachment: ‘Trump’s abuse threatens your freedom’

Published

A conservative attorney knocked down Republican arguments against impeachment one by one in a viral tweet, and urged others to support the removal President Donald Trump.

Bryan Gividen, an appellate attorney from Dallas, touted his conservative bona fides by describing himself as a "pro-religious liberty, pro-life, would snort Cocaine Mitch’s judicial confirmations" if he could -- but still said he supports Trump's impeachment.

"At this point, there is no question that President Trump directed U.S. officials to withhold security funding to the Ukraine so Ukraine would investigate the Bidens," Gividen began. "That is the kind of abuse of the President’s authority we should not tolerate."
