hi ☆*:・゚ i am the fwiendwy hacker awso known as mw hacking〜☆ t-there appeaws t-to be quite a bit of deniaw about t-the epik bweach, e-even though thewe's a massive amount of media covewage ( ˘⌣˘)♡(˘⌣˘ ) wouwd you w-wike me t-to hewp you undewstand the sevewity of this bweach-_-

I think many of us realize the complete depth of the data breach. If you are on Twitter you know.

My only real question is were the scanned ID documents in the breach as well?

With how much other stuff was involved, and what appears to be poor security from Epik can it be ruled out these documents were not stored the same way, instead of of using cold storage?

Chaos and I are lovers.

I can't expect you to read this long thread in its entirety, but it was mentioned somewhere that there was a continuous stream of bcc emails going to a Russian entity. What is known about this?

Your mistake is thinking I haven't been reading this thread the entire time.

Rob Monster didn't secure the data of hosted domains and violated dozens of compliance laws, and that's not even scratching the surface of privacy laws. Leaving a door open that isn't supposed to be touched is the poorest excuse for a data breach that I've ever heard. When will he be held liable for the damage that he caused to his clients?

Another issue that is beginning to surface as the EPIK data leaks are reviewed is EPIK's involvement with lolicon (drawn, sexually explicit images of children) and actual child pornography. I have been fighting with Monster about this for many years and I am glad to see it is finally coming back to expose him for the things he has been doing.

It started with Gab, the coat tails Mr Monster was trying to ride to popularity. Gab's main business model was selling lolicon and actual CP behind paywalls. That is the real reason they were cancelled by stripe (see attachments). I spoke with Mr Monster about this when he first took over domain hosting for Gab (2018). He called me a liar so I sent him several emails with many links to examples and even made a video. He then demanded I take down the video or else, of course I did not comply. He was far more concerned with making Gab look good and be a big deal so that he would look good and be a big deal, he not only didn't care about the ILLEGAL pornography but he attacked actual Christians, me, who were exposing it. (*I never requested that Rob stop hosting Gab, I just said he should not promote them and defend by telling things he knew were not true. It was very frustrating for me.)

Here is the video I made in 2018 exposing the lolicon on Gab.

After gab was kicked off microsoft hosting they moved to a hosting provider called Sybil. Sybil was literally just 2 teenage boys with a couple racked servers hosting lolicon and real CP. Mr Monster purchased them shortly thereafter for a very small amount. Sybil's total revenues were about $2,500/month and half of that was gab hosting. I know this because Rob told me directly and sent me an email with all of Sybil's financials before he purchased them.

Mr Monster helped cover up a huge lolicon distribution network for many years because he wanted to be famous and get rich and, from what seems to be coming out as a result of the leaks, he was even profiting from such things directly.

Also, as further proof of Mr Monster's corruption, he also helped cover up Gab's actual user numbers because he wanted Gab to be a bigger deal than it actually was. When Gab raised a couple million dollars from crowdfunding they were claiming to have a million users when in reality they only had a couple thousand. Rob knew this because he ran their hosting but again he threatened and demeaned me and helped Torba commit fraud.

Don't let my irreverent nature fool you, I'm here for serious, frank discussions with a bit of whimsy thrown in.

I'm sure everyone here has many questions I could assist with.

I've been discussed in this thread already. Figured it would be nice to come have a little chat.

1) Looks like your account on Twitter got suspended. Have you created a new account to release updates?

2) In the data have you seen anything related to conversations between epik staff or the Monster himself and the FBI or other law enforcement? I have only seen 2, and they both are related to subpoenas. (see attachments)

If you want to assign blame, it is reasonable to blame the incredible irresponsibility and/or ineptitude at Epik that resulted in such an enormous amount of data being stored in such a poor way. It might also be reasonable to blame those responsible for exfiltrating the data, though with security and data retention practices like Epik's my only surprise is that it didn't happen sooner.

It's entirely possible that data was always exiting Epik through the back door, due to incompetence, by design, or due to collusion or cooperation. The public release by recent hackers may actually have ruined others longstanding and ongoing discreet access to Epik data.

Surprised no one has mentioned the word Kompromat yet - sometimes behind the scenes pressures force behaviour.

Valid for Rob for messing with these groups.
Valid for epik for having Rob as CEO.
Valid for us for messing with epik.

I learnt my lesson.

You can blame Epik for poor management, lax security but not the breach. Epik was hacked by criminals because they hate Rob's politics.

Facebook, twitter, Instagram, every other major social media service deals with these problems. Weird you select one company to cry about, especially when FB has a notorious reputation for sex trafficking.

You seem obsessed and irrational.

You actually think the CEO of Epik keeps track of membership numbers for his customers websites?

I did not operate Epik Fail Data Leaks.

A cursory grep of the dump supposedly only reveals those two tickets, but there may be more under other keywords. I should ask if anyone has searched for NSL/National Security Letter/Gag Order.

You're not a hero.
We could show you the enormously positive reception to Epik Fail in most MSM comments calling Anonymous heroes to the United States, but your brain would probably short circuit.

Free speech does not equate freedom from consequences and I personally hope there are lessons being learned from this event.

Don't platform fascists for short-term gain. You will end up with nothing but long-term pain.

2/ @Bravo Mod Team and @Echo Mod Team verified me last night.

As a clarification, we have determined that you are most likely not trying to impersonate anyone. We can't be certain, as the Wikipedia page in question was created only two days prior to your arrival here by someone you appear to know, and the sources, while numerous, provide limited identifying information or are primary sources.

You're not a hero.

He's not claiming to be the individual who hacked Epik. He's offering his opinion, just as you are.

Who doesn't enjoy a little bit of chaos now and then?

Before this gets heated, as a reminder, this is a professional forum, and everyone here is expected to conduct themselves accordingly regardless of their views. You're going to be interacting with a significant number of people who have little to no security experience. We have a policy against deliberate trolling or antagonizing, and although there's been no shortage of people forgetting that policy in this thread, we'd prefer if the issue weren't exacerbated.

We could show you the enormously positive reception to Epik Fail in most MSM comments calling Anonymous heroes to the United States, but your brain would probably short circuit.

While you'll be offered some leniency because you've just arrived, we do ask that you refrain from being condescending.

Free speech does not equate freedom from consequences and I personally hope there are lessons being learned from this event.

Indeed, and regardless of whether NamePros staff agrees with your views on the issue at hand, our community does have an expectation that we will remove people who are here purely to antagonize without contributing.

Don't platform fascists for short-term gain. You will end up with nothing but long-term pain.

Epik's policies have been argued at great length on NamePros over the course of several years. Everything that could be said has been said, and in a small industry like ours, everyone knows where everyone else stands. There isn't much point in debating it further; you're just creating more work for moderators who have to clean up the mess, and that isn't appreciated.
