It's a bad day to be a fash, uspol, Parler hack review
All of Parler's User Data Is Being Hacked
Apparently, the way Parler was designed for its "lost password" flow was that once their authentication provider failed to actually handle the "click this link in this email to reset your password", Parler displays the "reset page" anyway, so users just used it on administrator accounts, then created tons of fake administrator accounts, & then used those account privileges to scrape all user data. Also "deletion" was just a bit-flip and posts werent actually deleted
but seriously, I’m feeling extra special vindicated on having an absolutely-zero-nazis policy on our instance. I’ve been criticized for going too far by not federating with instances who choose to federate with gab, but guess what.
de-platforming fascists is good and it works.
