Revenge Porn's Hunter Moore Hit by 'Anonymous' Hackers
LOS ANGELES — IsAnyoneUp.com founder Hunter Moore’s new attempt to revive his revenge porn ways has been stymied by Anonymous hackers.
Moore’s new HunterMoore.tv was temporarily shut down by the hacktivist group yesterday. The group also stole and posted his personal information.
The site is currently back live, again accepting submissions but without Moore's welcoming text from his initial launch.
Moore promised “a very scary” rebirth of his original site that published nudes, damning descriptions and social media links without prior permission.
The controversial and often publicy hated webmaster threatened to publish private addresses of people on his new site that could have encouraged stalking, which sparked a retaliatory campaign by Anonymous on Twitter with the hashtag #OpHuntHunter.
A Pastebin post said Moore was the target of “hundreds, if not thousands” of Anonymous operatives and regular users who helped shut down Moore’s new site.
The Pastebin post included Moore’s address, Social Security number, birth date and parents' names as well as some edited credit card information. Moore's SoundCloud account was also hijacked by the hackers who signed him up for a premium account using his credit card information.
Anonymous made it clear that in the event Moore tried to remove damning evidence, it had a full backup on hand.
"We have backed up his entire archive to the Web to preserve evidence," the Pastebin post read. "He has since restored an alternate version of his website with different text at the bottom."
The attack on Moore reportedly also offers evidence that he does not age verify nudes on his site. Pastebin posted, "This proves that huntermoore [sic] has underage girls on his servers, proves he does not age verify before posting, and proves he plans to publish addresses of the victims."
