Suspected hacker attack on Flashback | Free Times

Published 21 August 2022 at 21.12

Many of the thread starters have been posted by old and established accounts, which has led to Flashback users now asks himself if the forum has been hacked and the accounts hijacked.

In the posts in question, there were first identical links to a site that advertises cheap accounts with streaming services.

The ability to post new posts was paused by Flashback for a while, but then the attack continued – with new threads starting with headlines like “you never win” where the attacker promises never to give up.

Flashback’s administrator has not yet commented on the matter. However, the forum’s members have noticed that an account named “Negern-Alex” in a now-deleted post on Sunday afternoon threatened to “hire hackers who bring down the whole FB”, after initially “spamming the forum under a false name”.

Flashback has previously been exposed to security threats. In 2007, someone came across a database of all Flashback members with registration information, and the left-wing extremist Martin Fredriksson later got hold of this database. Via Fredrikson, the database then ended up with Robert Aschberg’s far-left monitoring company Piscatus, which today is called Acta publica. The leak has led to a large number of people on the right being outed in the media for what they believed to be anonymous posts on Flashback.
