    I see. I think the CEO is easily impressed and doesn't know what's going on within the network, really (or does not care). I noticed this in some technical threads on namepros earlier.

    This one is pretty messed up if they stored failed login attempts in plain text. I'm no security expert but a lot of this stuff seems like common sense stuff of what not to do.

    We've all probably done this from time to time so certainly concerning, especially if the data goes back 10 years.

    "Our engineers believe the hack is of an aged remote backup, not of Epik's core production."

    Do these engineers still believe this?

    Was all data indeed from a backup, including the many historical .ovpn files?

    I left EPIK and DYNADOT at the beginning of 2021 because of concerns about data security and personal privacy.
    EPIK's login structure is so large that it's unusual for the same account to be able to log into multiple projects. They are just a registrar now, but it seems that their desire is to create a full ecological platform. When your aspirations are too big, something is bound to go wrong.

    The thing that everyone accuses every registrar of doing, logging your searches, Epik WAS PROBABLY DOING THAT?

    We'll see.

    No conspiracy theory.

    I'm starting to think that Epik should better sell the business asap. With all domains/accounts migrated to another registrar. Bulk domain transfer in such a case would be free (if approved by ICANN I think? needs to be rechecked...) Since Epik was reported to Visa/Mastercard, as some twitter posts suggest, it is far from obvious that their merchant accounts would not be terminated by credit card systems. But, a registrar cannot run accepting crypto and wires only, CC is a must. The problem here is that no registrar would want to receive a number of "toxic" domains (or customers) Epik currently has...

    It's NOT TRUE. Some people just make up a story to make the situation worse.
    According to the Database Schema
    https://pastebin.com/1bLEm78G

    The domain_history table was just a list of data contains the operation history of domains. Including the history of unlock domain, change nameserver, set url forwarding etc.

    (Above Pastebin link is refer to this post: https://www.namepros.com/posts/8400013/)

    Gab.com was booted by Godaddy and went to Epik, bringing controversy with it:

    My Question is.... As most of these sites left Godaddy for Epik .... where there other hosts that they could have used aside from epik ?? The controversies seem to revolve around Godaddy giving the boot to these sites

    twitter bio says “Founder of # Anonymous (yes that one)”

    This is why you’re my favorite # websleuth.

    I am considering downloading this DB. I'd like to know what exactly is there about my domains, such as whois records of non-epik domains... or something I might purchase @ namejet many years ago ...

    The issue I am experiencing is the following: Rob disclosed in video that there are now curses on this dataset.

    Ref:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulsa_diNura

    (just an example)

    I'm just a domainer. Not an exorcist.

    Any recommendations (or references to external sources) to remain safe?

    That may or may not cover curses and data breaches - you'd need to ask the company providing the service, namely Epik.

    I pressed them and they auto approved. I disagree its good to wait a week. I have 2Factor on and zero reason to not approve my request. One of the names I sold. Not telling my customer to wait a week 🙄

    When so many different data sets were managed and preserved in this way, it may have been a design choice. The other option is ignorance, I don't know which one is better.

    Just reporting that my 1st batch of Masterbucks withdrawal (100) is successful. As for amount, for this round it's lower, probably due to crypto dipping yesterday, so I won't complain.
