OxAlien has also left a note on the dumped data in support of Palestine expressed in following words:

  • Long Live Palestine, Long Live Gaza! #FreePalestine #OpFreePalestine #OpBoycottIsrael

After analyzing the leaked data, I have found it legit where 10,646+ accounts with usernames, emails and their clear-text passwords were dumped online.

According to @OxAlien, he has logged into 5 of the accounts personally and found the working. He has also taken liberty of personally cracking over 10,644 accounts.

Dumped data with their clear-text passwords and other details can be found here.

@OxAlien is the same hacker who had hacked and breached Virgin Radio Dubai website and Iran’s Web Defacement Archive platform couple of months ago.
