Skeptical Science hacked, private user details publicly posted online
Posted on 25 March 2012 by John Cook
Sometime over the last few days, the Skeptical Science website [q. v.] has been hacked. The hacker has taken much or all of the Skeptical Science database, zipped various excerpts into a single file, uploaded the file onto a Russian website then linked to the zip file from various blogs. [...]
Of great concern is the fact that the hacker has published personal details such as emails and IP addresses of each user.
"This is an anonymous leak per the standard, but I will consider stepping bravely forward if I get caught."I couldn't find it with a Google search.
If anyone has any further details on the crackers' announcement of the data dump and/or the hyperlink for the dumped material, please e-mail me, so that I can add it to my stash of information possibly related to SwiftHack. I'll use this information only for my own private knowledge, and I'll not publish it. (My e-mail address is on the left sidebar.)
