Hackers have attacked the Internet forum ‘Kiwi Farms’. In a blog post, ‘Kiwi Farms’ has said that users’ passwords and email addresses have been stolen, giving information about the data breach that happened with it. ‘Kiwi Farms’ is a platform known for organizing harassment campaigns specifically targeting women and people from the LGBTQ community. The head of Kiwi Farms has reported that their website has suffered a breach. The website has been hacked by someone and the hackers have been able to access the administrator account and possibly the accounts of other users.
According to a news agency report, Kiwi Farms said in a post updated on Monday that the forum had been hacked. After that you need to reformat everything and reinstall. Apart from this, the matter of evaluation of security has also been said. It is worth noting that Kiwi Farms was being protected from hackers by Cloudflare, but after strong rebuke from critics, Cloudflare, which provides web hosting and cyber security services, closed the service of Kiwi Farms was.
Cloudflare chief executive Matthew Prince said earlier this month that the company had blocked Kiwi Farms’ content from being accessed through its infrastructure. Matthew Prince said in an online message that given Cloudflare’s role as an Internet infrastructure provider, this is an extraordinary decision for us. Critics said Cloudflare was enabling widespread harassment and docking activities targeting transgender and nonbinary people. Cloudflare was one of the last providers to provide security to Kiwi Farms.
The current form of Kiwi Farm was started in the year 2013. The platform quickly became the focus of online harassment campaigns. At least three suicides have been linked to harassment stemming from the Kiwi farm community. Forum participants often openly admit that their goal is to force people to take their own lives. They target trans, non-binary people, people from the LGBTQ community and women.
