Hackers associated with the Black Shadow group say they have released the full user data of Israeli users of the Atraf gay dating site after their demand for $1 million went unanswered.
On its Telegram group, Black Shadow releases a file it says contains the full database of users from the site, including those who revealed their HIV status.
The hackers, believed to be linked to Iran, demanded on Sunday a ransom payment of $1 million in digital currency to stop the leak. The Black Shadow hacking group said in a statement that it was “looking for money” and would not leak further information if the ransom was paid within 48 hours.
The group said the database of the Atraf website, a geo-located dating service and nightlife index whose app and website are popular in the Israeli LGBT community, contained information on some one million people.
