I don't really get what his problem with scraped (public) Whois Data is.
Apparently that information once was publicly available in whois and either still is nowadays or at least can be accessed via Whois History sites.
This story is not about WHOIS.
They lost their entire DB backup of Feb'28/March'1.

I'm not going to link to the tweet, for security purposes. But I'm seeing a tweet with sensitive info and I recognized the email as a NPer, so I've DM'd that member. Everyone here who's ever used Epik really needs to take this seriously.

Addition: NamePros members could request [Epik] to mark their account for special NamePros pricing, so I guess there is an administration of this as well, which matches the Epik account with the nP account / forum name.

I have never heard about Gab, Parler etc.
I see them firstly in this thread...
@Rob Monster , why their problems are mine now?
Gab, after they bought the domain name gab.com had Godaddy attacked them and they were told they had to move it to a new registrar and Epik became the registrar as godaddy was not for the free speech.
 
This stuff is all over Twitter now. It just keeps getting worse and worse.

Countless people are wondering how they ended up in a data breach from a company they never even heard of. Many of these comments are in response to emails from "Have I Been Pwned" regarding the hack.

tagging:

@Paul :: does this theory make epik namePros members more vulnerable? eg the potential for an epik nP member doxxing repository? Or hacked nP accounts? If so, is this a good time to allow namePros to delete direct message threads? It's always baffled me that direct messages didn't work similar to email in that of send/receive/delete capability.

@Rob Monster -- was this data lost as well? eg. profile names with real names, addresses, passwords, etc associated with validating namepros members special pricing?

Will there be complaints (FBI & IC3.gov) and lawsuits coming. Maybe.
Luckily Epik is a private company otherwise the stocks will go down to 2 cents
Cut the corner in security - store data in plaintext, hire cheap employees - so he can make a dollar more and spam to customers that he can provide good pricing is wrong.
You get what you paid for.

It's just a matter of time before the boat will sink. Jump when you can.

Fact of the matter is, loads of domain investors have accounts at a dozen or so registrars. You often need to in order to receive domains you buy that are registered at these registrars. It's part of the domain trading business. Obviously not everyone who's had an account at Epik is aligned with the beliefs of Rob Monster. Gotta assume a lot of folks don't realize this though, and some may not care to make the distinction. It's a shame that Epik has dragged so many people into their shitshow.

No approve button

I think it's better with no approve button right now. With domains at risk in case someone somehow gets a valid auth code for a domain (and maybe is able to login somehow, to unlock a domain too), it allows more time to notice an unauthorized transfer out.

But if you ask support, are they able to expedite it so the transfer goes through?
