Pastebin Removing Hacktivist Uploads.
Pastebin – the website often adored by hackers and online activists for simply publishing text files acquired from hacking and so forth – has begun censoring, moderating and ultimately removing posts published by the likes of Anonymous and other online hacktivists.
Whilst Pastebin was always popular amongst groups like Anonymous – there are plenty of other ways to dump the information with Pastebay in mind – a site setup by Pirate Bay founders with the soul intention to resist all censorship.
Distributing information isn’t exactly hard to do in this day and age and people will always reach the content and save it before the website’s moderators get to it.
An activist by the alias of “Pastaroo” saw the paste of information belonging to the USA Department of Energy (DOE) removed recently. The said paste was captured just before it’s removal and you can view it or download it from the Disclosure Vault right here.
