The names, addresses, and Social Security numbers for Twitter founders and CEO have been published to the website DOXBIN, in what appears to be a retaliation for account suspensions.
The leaked details included data on Twitter co-founders’ Jack Dorsey, Evan Williams and Noah Glass, along with chief executive Dick Costolo.
Their full Social Security numbers were published and in some cases even mobile phone numbers, date-of-birth and previous postal addresses.
It’s not entirely clear where the data came from.
But, at the top of the page it suggested the release of the information was in retaliation for suspending a number of accounts on the microblogging service.
“Twitter suspended @doxbin for ‘excessive mentions’ and then refused to provide any support via the ticket system for the account,” it read.
DOXBIN, the site where this data was found is a dark net website, used by Tor, the anonymous browsing network, which is not searchable by companies like Google or Microsoft.
While most search engines remove illegal content, what they can’t find they can’t do much about.
DOXBIN received considerable attention earlier in the year when it claimed to have hacked and taken down the Hidden Wiki after they refused to remove links to child porn websites.
If the owner of DOXBIN is behind the release of information and the Hidden Wiki hack, then they certainly don’t seem like a force to be reckoned with!
