One user scraped 88,172 pastes from our API and uploaded it. That's about 0.001% of pastes in our index.

The dump only includes pastes <= 2021-05. We were able to find the account (and other related accounts) that were involved in the scraping.

During this research we found that this user was targeting the CEO of a datacenter/uplink provider we work with.

The actor registered multiple accounts under "" email addresses. He abused our Academia program which provides free access to certain categories including Pastes.

Some of the accounts were registered in 2020 and we were able to seize them.

After publishing the details and freezing the account, the actor continues to register accounts (with edu emails). In a tweet today he posted his redacted account details.

As per our privacy policy (which the user agreed to), we share information about attackers with the public.

His emails and were instantly blocked, though research reveals interesting details about this person. In the attached picture you can see a search results indicating accounts on the site, BlackHatWorld and elitecarders.

We are obviously checking each order and deactivate the account in question if fraud occurs and forward all IP addresses to law enforcement.
We are thinking of introducing a Hall of Shame 🤔

It will include fraudsters that use stolen credit cards and stolen PayPal accounts who think it is a good idea to sign up and try to scam a security company. 🙅🏻‍♂️ 🛑

Fraud hurts everyone in the process: First and foremost the card holder, the processor, the merchant, and legitimate customers who absorb overhead costs.

Our Terms of Service makes it clear that we will share details of fraud with law enforcement and the public.

The full letter is attached. It includes the following statement regarding the ongoing encryption debate:

"we should strengthen, not weaken, undermine, or backdoor encryption. It is technical nonsense to undermine encryption and could lead to a dangerous precedent for non-Western countries to follow."
