Epik has been owned | Web Hosting Talk

Hacktivist group Anonymous has allegedly hacked web domain registrar Epik and has stolen “a decade’s worth of data,” including considerable info regarding their clients and domains.

The hack was first publicized by independent journalist Steven Monacelli and later reported on by Gizmodo.

Monacelli had shared a “press release” on 4chan by the hackers, which declared that they stole information on all of Epik’s customers and data from an Epik employee’s inbox, which they claim is “all that’s needed to trace actual ownership and management of the fascist side of the Internet that has eluded researchers, activists, and, well, just about everybody.”

Later, it was announced that the hackers recovered 180 gigabytes of data and would release it for public download.
