DDoSecrets cofounder Emma Best says that the hacked data includes not only all of Gab’s public posts and profiles—with the exception of any photos or videos uploaded to the site—but also private group and private individual account posts and messages, as well as user passwords and group passwords.

“It’s another gold mine of research for people looking at militias, neo-Nazis, the far right, QAnon and everything surrounding January 6.”

On Friday I contacted Gab about a major breach of their backend. Their CEO responded with a blog post accusing me of “assisting the hacker in his efforts to smear our business.” He followed up today w/ another post about “[transphobic slur] demon hackers.” https://t.co/06xxRl5gaW
