On September 26th, members of a group called “CabinCr3w” or “C@B!NCR3W”released the personal information of Anthony Balogna, a cop who allegedly pepper sprayed a group of “random women” during the Occupy Wall Street protest, in NYC. This group, which is said to have ties to the wider collective of activists, known as “Anonymous”, has since released the personal information of multiple bankers, and more in response to arrests, and actions by police – and bankers during OccupyWallStreet.
This morning, CabinCr3w released the personal information of Thomas Ryan, a man who gained media attention after providing information to the FBI about the actions of Occupy Wall Street protesters. Thomas, who has allegedly provided the e-mails of protesters to the FBI, and US organizations has since come under fire by activists with “Anonymous”.
The personal information, or dox, as it is referred to by many people, was dropped on a “paste” website called “stickypaste”, which seems to be an alternative to the mainly-used paste site, pastebin.com (the site used by groups like lulzsec to do their releases)… The “dox” includes information like 2 addresses he has/does live at, job experience and more.
In the release of the data, the “official” CabinCr3w Twitter account suggested that people should “send pizza” to Thomas’s home. Sending pizzas(to be paid at door), is a common activity after “doxing” someone.
