Joseph Cox, reporting for Motherboard:


Tens of thousands of subscriber accounts for media company Infowars are being traded in the digital underground. Infowars, created by famed radio host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, produces radio, documentaries and written pieces. The dumped data relates to Prison Planet TV, which gives paying subscribers access to a variety of Infowars content. The data includes email addresses, usernames, and poorly hashed passwords. The administrator of breach notification site Databases. Land provided a copy of 100,223 records to Motherboard for verification purposes. Vigilante.PW, another breach notification service, also has the Infowars dump listed on its site, and says the data comes from 2014. However, every record appears to have been included twice in the data, making the actual number of user accounts closer to 50,000.

Motherboard adds that it tested a few of the login credentials and that they worked.

Well, the problem is when we have a terrorist attack or a school shooting, the media always lies - so you can't really blame people for going to inforwars for their news, they are one of the more accurate purveyors of news out there.

Hacked? No wonder so many so-called libertarians and so-called conservatives have been shilling for The Trumptard. Maybe the same thing happened here?

According to Infowars, they are rehashing an old hack story as new.

Infowars has investigated and examined the latest dump and determined that the information comes from the 2012 incident. At the time of that breach, Infowars notified users, reset passwords and took numerous steps to harden our systems to prevent further attacks.
Infowars stopped using the MD5 algorithm to hash passwords and began using a more secure method after the breach as well.

True, but I don't trust them either.
