The hacker that leaked 50,000 accounts of the feminist organization Womens Land Link Africa is now overwhelmed with regrets, and confessed on Pastebin that he has made a mistake because heâ€™s â€œyoung as stupid.â€
â€œRight. I’ve made a mistake obviously,â€ AnonymousAustralia hacktivist known as DoktorBass said. â€œI feel very guilty now about dumping that site, I shouldn’t have done it. It was a site promoting women’s rights in Africa for f**k’s sake. I’m meant to be supporting that.â€
The attacker allegedly wrote a formal apology for the data dump victims, asking people who already downloaded the file packed with password â€œgoodiesâ€ to delete it immediately.
DoktorBass also asked CyberWarNews, who first reported on the attack, to â€œremove that articleâ€ they â€œjust did on this,â€ finishing his pleading with â€œGod have mercy upon me.â€
Many of the leaked credentials are from Gmail and Yahoo!, but some are duplicates. The data dump has been posted to Pastebin with a link to a 15mb file uploaded on Anonfiles.
â€œF**king enjoy,â€ the young hacker said when first posting the stolen passwords and emails from the African womenâ€™s organization. â€œTo dump the entire database would require me to leave my computer running for over a week straight, so this is simply a small portion of it. This is not an Anonymous attack, it is simply cyber-crime. Donâ€™t complain to me about it.â€
Womans Land Link Africa was established by several organizations working on issues of womenâ€™s housing and land rights.
