Leak of thousands of posts from defunct neo-Nazi forum offers clues to identify Canadian members - 2019-11-09
A massive leak of posts and private messages from a neo-Nazi message board that went offline two years ago offers clues to identify its Canadian members, including some who claimed to serve in the Canadian Armed Forces.
The message board, known as Iron March, is where the neo-Nazi terror network Atomwaffen Division was founded and organized. Members of the group have been charged with multiple murders and hate crimes in the U.S., and the group has branched out to other countries, including Canada and the United Kingdom, as well as in Eastern Europe.
The leak, made anonymously by an activist known only as "antifa-data," includes close to 200,000 posts and 22,000 private messages made by 1,200 users from 2011 to 2017. It also contains other information that can be used to personally identify users, such as email addresses and IP addresses.
