    Gay Furry Hackers, if you’re listening, I think you would be widely rewarded by our press for releasing some emails.

      What is really needed is where else those email addresses are used and how long ago they signed up on other sites

        Oh for sure, I just wanted to remember that time that Donald Trump colluded with Russian hackers on national television and no one cared. They released the DNC emails the next day. Not a single bit of GOP info, which was also taken, just not released (likely Kompromat now).

          Yep. I don’t mean to shock anyone, but when the demented orange rapist said “complete exoneration” he was lying.

          I know. I know. It’s a lot to process. Let’s all just take some deep breaths.

    I like how the hackers who are exposing the Heritage Foundation as the HQ for American right-wing Christofascism are the criminals. Good job “unbiased” media.

      The people who own the media are part of the group that was attacked by them. Of course they would portray them as the criminals. They’re just good upstanding wealthy White Collar thieves

      Ok, that’s the good stuff, I was thinking 2 GB is nothing. But, 2 GB of logon credentials can make lots of future leaks.

    A Heritage spokesperson told CyberScoop after publication that the organization was not “hacked.” Instead, the spokesperson said “an organized group stumbled upon a two-year-old archive of The Daily Signal website that was available on a public-facing website owned by a contractor. The information obtained was limited to usernames, names, email addresses, and incomplete password information of both Heritage and non-Heritage contributors, as well as article comments and the IP address of the commentor.”

    At least they’re admitting to being incompetent…
