    i just moved most of my domains to Epik also. Website is too slow loading atm to try change password. I hope Rob posts the steps we should take to secure the account which we can follow once he gets a chance.

    To people like this that genuinely think they're on the right side or have a virtuous position because of some opposing "beliefs" that they think are "more correct" I do feel sorry for you... It reflects more on you than it does anyone else. I'm assuming that this is where you're coming from and not just that you want them to fall cause you had bad customer service or something...

    The hackers are not in the right, they're not virtuous, they are more scummy than how they see those they purport to be attacking and if true they're affecting lots of people that also don't deserve it. It's clear from the stupid little message that they left how ideologically driven they are.

    I feel sorry for you as this is your reaction to this, you're not a worthy member of a nice community like this imho where you are amongst those that will be affected. Revelling in other people's misfortunes is not a good look.

    If this massive breach is indeed true, it would be a perfect idea to hire an external company for investigation. Don't let the CEO touch anything. That's good practice in Incident Response.

    Credibility damage is the most important here.
    Imagine the potential buyers who visit your domains on Epik landers after such news...

    Peoples personal/financial information potentially being stolen is the most important issue here...company credibility can take a back seat until that's been cleared up....

    OMG, really?

    There is only one wrong here and that is the hackers

    Are you telling me that if you disagree with a business they deserve to be hacked?

    The hacker has made it clear that is not their intention but nonetheless I agree most heartily with that part of your statement.

    it’s a fake “Anonymous”

    Anyone can claim to be “Anonymous”

    Apparently, epik is too “fascist” for them.

    Antifa virtue-signaling hackers. LOL, Clowns,

    DDoS is usually ordered to downgrade or even kill your reputation...
    So if competitors hired some hackers (because 1st method is not enough) - I'm not surprised...

    In the message it says they're releasing 500k private keys, musing that they don't even know what they're for. So in truth they don't know what they're unleashing access to and probably care even less.

    Yes, without a doubt. I have had many issues with Epik and Rob Monster, and would not wish a data breach on anyone. No one wins, with the biggest loser being the customers.

    According to this info, the torrent is larger (180 GB) than what was previously announced.

    Have you looked at the contents of the release? I haven't... But they said "Over 500,000 private keys. What are they for? Who knows!".

    Presumably keys for protecting some system or another, that's what they're usually for to protect something... Like VPN keys?

    500K is like 500K domains on Epik nameservers...
    Their DNS signatures.

    From 35.6MB to 180GB (pump-up file scheme, a trick previously used by Movie Protection co. More likely this is not a real thing & A is not involved)

    Seems as plausible as anything I can come up with. Any musings on what this could affect/expose/compromise if it is?

    So basically if that's the case using this information anyone could pretend to be communicating from domains that they don't own like in the example of Yahoo mail etc on that article. Please correct me if I'm wrong...
