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.

Published

on

It's clear that Fox News and other right-wing reporters are trying to create boogymen in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. A new analysis by CNN media reporter Brian Stelter, revealed that the conservative network has said Ocasio-Cortez's name more than CNN and MSNBC combined.

"First, Ocasio-Cortez and her "Squad" mate Ilhan Omar have been talked about a lot more on Fox than on other cable news channels this year," Stelter wrote. "Second, the freshmen have been getting more attention on cable than seasoned leaders of the Democratic Party."

Congress should ask Mueller these specific questions about Trump’s involvement with Russia: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Never-Trump columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined the essential questions that Democrats should ask special counsel Robert Mueller in an op-ed for the Washington Post.

"Rather than engage in the normal scattershot questioning punctuated by speechifying, the House Judiciary Committee should assign its able attorney Norman Eisen to conduct the questioning," proposed Rubin. "Members could then follow up with additional questions.'

One question she proposed asking: "Mr. Mueller, the attorney general said you did not find 'collusion.' However, you did not look for collusion. Please explain what you looked for and how that differs from [Attorney General William] Barr’s assertion that you essentially cleared President Trump of collusion?"
