Reading Time: < 1 minute

Far-right militia linked to US Capitol Riot leaked emails, chat logs, membership records, donor lists, and other files on Monday.

Around 5GB of data belonging to Oath Keepers, at least four of whom have been indicted for and admitted their role in the January 6 storming of the US capitol, was passed to the DDoSecrets Collective and shared online. According to a Daily Dot report, the leaked membership list contains accounts of 160 US government and military email addresses.

Approximately 28 email addresses in the list use the .gov domain, including those from local city governments to sheriff’s departments. While other email addresses are linked to more obscure government bodies, like the California Department of Water Resources (DWR).

Earlier nearly 180GB of documents were leaked online from domain ownership records to account credentials and payment histories from compromised servers belonging to Epik. Epik provided web hosting to the Oath Keepers as well as Parler and Gab.

It is early to say if Oath Keepers and Epik leaks are directly related. Though earlier Epik denied it was compromised, but confirmed it was hacked when confronted by journalist Steven Monacelli. He was the one to break the news of the security breach, during a wild video conference session.
