“The published information includes a carbon copy of the site, from user details to forum posts, and from private messages to multi-factor authentication settings and forum management logs,” reports BleepingComputer. “The forum’s database includes details on 3,548 registered profiles. The last user’s database ID is 15,218; however, the dump only included details on 3,548 accounts — most likely due to spam or deleted profiles. The registration date for the last user is November 20, 2017, suggesting the database is a copy of the site near the time it went offline.”

Freshly Exhumed shares a report from ZDNet: A mysterious hacker has published today a database dump of one of the internet’s most infamous neo-nazi meeting places — the IronMarch forum. The data published today includes a full copy of its content, including sensitive details such as emails, IP addresses, usernames, and private messages. The database dump is currently being analyzed by a multitude of entities, including law enforcement, in the hopes of linking forum members to accounts on other sites and potentially exposing their real-world identities. The drive to unmask forum members comes from the fact that IronMarch, while a little-known site to most internet users, has been the birthplace of two of today’s most extreme far-right neo-nazi movements — the Atomwaffen Division and SIEGE Culture — with the first being accused of orchestrating at least eight murders around the world. The forum’s data was published earlier today via the Internet Archive portal.
