Alex Jones’ Infowars Website Hacked In Orchestrated Attack

Fact checked by The People's Voice Community
Alex Jones' Info Wars Website hacked

Leading alternative news website InfoWars.com has suffered a major hack, with thousands of user accounts leaked online. 

According to Motherboard, Alex Jones’ website gives paying subscribers access to premium content such as stories, video’s and additional information not available on the regular site. The details of these subscribers, such as email addresses, usernames and their passwords, were all leaked online.

Rawstory.com reports:

An administrator at Databases.Land gave a copy of over 50,000 unique records to prove the hack was real and Vigilante.PW also lists a data dump of the InfoWars information.

Motherboard verified that the email addresses and usernames were real and the users of the emails admitted they were signed up to Infowars/PrisonPlanet.

The passwords were masked by a cryptographic algorithm known as MD5, which is notoriously weak and easy for hackers to break. It’s still unclear how much information beyond email, username and passwords have been obtained by the hackers.

The news comes on the same day that the FBI released information that election databases were also hacked in Arizona and Illinois.

“We have cross referenced the current dump versus our current db and it is data from an old breach that happened in 2012 and was dealt with at that time,” Buckley Hamman from Infowars told Motherboard in a statement.
