DescriptionA leak or hack of tens of thousands of Email account details related to the WIV, NIH, Gates foundation. Reported by SITE. Corporate media not very interested.

Around 20,000-25,000 of sets of email addresses and passwords were released online by 21 April 2020.[1] Commercially-controlled media did not report the story widely. "Robert Potter, an independent Australian cybersecurity expert, said the data was real as he could verify some of the email IDs and passwords of WHO."[2]

Affected organisations

NIH, CDC, World Bank, WHO, Gates Foundation, WIV (in that order)

Reporting

Detection

The leak was initially reported by SITE Intelligence.[7][8] The data was posted to 4chan first.[9]

Outcome

Since no more information related to these e-mail accounts was released, the leak was possibly only intended to show that a breach has taken place and how much time has passed since then.
