Cottle appears to have responded to the comments accusing him of being behind this month’s GiveSendGo attack. The hacked data – which included the names, email addresses, and zip codes of everyone who donated to fundraisers for the truckers in Ottawa that have been protesting Covid-19 restrictions – was offered by the website DDoSecrets to journalists and researchers, who then publicly identified donors.
GiveSendGo has requested an FBI investigation of the hack and called it a ‘hack. “well orchestrated”With “strong political motivations behind” it.
“This is illegal, and these people should be going to jail,”Jacob Wells, the founder, said it in an interview on Fox News. “surprising that we haven’t heard from any investigative services”about an investigation of the matter.
Many have criticised news media for disclosing the identity of donors. Ilhanomar (Democratic Congresswoman) was even mentioned. accusingThere are many outlets that offer help to normal people who made it. “insignificant”Donations “harassed.”
While some social media users questioned the validity of Cottle’s confession, he is indeed a well-known hacker who has repeatedly been cited in the media, including the New York Times, as a hacker “affiliated with Anonymous.”Vice News also interviewed Cottle, and last year Cottle was featured in a HBO documentary on the conspiracy theory QAnon.
