70TB of Parler users’ messages, videos, and posts leaked by security researchers

282

Parler, a social network used to plan the storming of the U.S. Capitol last week, has been hit by a massive data scrape. Security researchers collected swaths of user data before the network went dark Monday morning after Amazon, Google, and Apple booted the platform.

The scrape includes user profile data, user information, and which users had administration rights for specific groups within the social network. Twitter user @donk_enby, who first announced about the scrape, claims that over a million video URLs, some deleted and private, were taken.

“These are original, unprocessed, raw files as uploaded to Parler with all associated metadata,” claims one of the authors.

Security researchers claim that the scraped posts are linked to accounts that posted them, and some of the video and image data have geolocation information. That is said also to include data from Parler’s “Verified Citizens,” users of the network who verified their identity by uploading photographs of government-issued IDs, such as a driver’s license.

However, after the news about the data scrape went global, the author of the hack @donk_enby explained in a tweet that neither her nor others have collected any personal data that Parler users did not make public themselves.

“Only things that were available publicly via the web were archived. I don't have you e-mail address, phone or credit card number. unless you posted it yourself on Parler,” she stated on Twitter.

The data might prove valuable to law enforcement since many who participated in the riots deleted their posts and videos afterward. The data scrape includes deleted posts, meaning that Parler stored user data after users deleted it.

Parler, a far-right friendly site, was among the key candidates to host President Donald Trump’s social media presence as Twitter and Facebook suspended his accounts for instigating violence.

Parler, which claims to have over 10 million users, has lax rules over content, making the platform very attractive to far-right groups. Google and Apple removed Parler’s smartphone app from their app stores, claiming that the platform allowed posting that seeks to “incite ongoing violence in the U.S..” Amazon took similar measures, removing Parler from its hosting service.

Reddit users claim that the scrape was made possible due Twilio, an American cloud communications platform that provided the platform with phone number verification services, cutting ties with Parler.

In a press release announcing the decision, Twilio revealed which services Parler was using. This information allowed hackers to deduce that it was possible to create users and verified accounts without actual verification.

With this type of access, newly minted users were able to get behind the login box API used for content delivery. That allowed them to see which users had moderator rights and this in turn allowed them to reset passwords of existing users with simple “forgot password” function. Since Twilio no longer authenticated emails, hackers were able to access admin accounts with ease.

Twilio, however, distanced themselves from the accusations on revealing information about Parler’s services in a press release. The company’s head of corporate communications, Cris Paden, reached out to CyberNews in an article comment claiming that Twilio’s security experts found no evidence that Parlers’ security issues were related to their services.

“On Friday, January 8th, we sent Parler a letter informing them they were in violation of our Acceptable Use Policy and notifying them that we would suspend their account if they did not make efforts to remediate multiple calls for violence on their platform,” Mr. Paden explained in a comment.

He claims that shortly after, Parler informed the company they had already turned off their navigation with Twilio and therefore any security issues were unrelated to Twilio.

How was the scrape done?

First and foremost, the Parler data scrape was not a hack in the conventional sense. According to Matt Warner, CTO at Blumira, a cybersecurity provider of automated threat detection and response technology, recent events could be considered a significant "hacktivism movement."

“There has not been any proof that Parler itself was “hacked,” but rather, the platform was inherently insecure and was leveraged in a group effort before being taken down,” he explained.

His team estimates that at least 15 offensive parties took part in the data scrape, and hackers collected at least 60 terabytes of data. The breach itself can be attributed to poor engineering and lack of testing on the Parler’s side that allowed a mass collection of archived data.

“This was due to an unprotected API call that was sequentially numbered, therefore allowing any attacker to iterate continuously over the endpoint and take all information available,” Mr. Warner explained.

There has not been any proof that Parler itself was “hacked,” but rather, the platform was inherently insecure and was leveraged in a group effort before being taken down,

Matt Warner.

The CTO noted that Twilio’s move to pull out allowed potential users to create Parler accounts without verifying their email. According to him, Parler allowed for an IDOR attach, which enumerates across all data available.

“In the case of Parler, this was URLs that looked like https://par.pw/v1/photo?id= and the ID could be sequentially increased to gather information from the API without direct knowledge,” he explained.

A question of ethics

Even though the stated purpose of the data scrape is to keep proof of wrongdoing, a question remains: do the ends justify the means?

On the one hand, some of the people whose data got scraped actively planned acts of violence. On the other, some people joined Parler only out of curiosity or professional obligation, such as journalists. However, the data scrape was universal, without hackers paying attention to the real intentions of account holders.

"From what I‘m reading, these weren‘t hacking in a sense we think about state-sponsored hacking, involving phishing or active deception, or anything like that. There was a glaring gap in the security of the platform, and @donk_enby and a few others noticed it and used it," Ali Alkhatib, data ethicist and a research fellow at the Center for Applied Data Ethics, explained to CyberNews.

Since @donk_enby did not carry out the data scrape secretively, there’s little to worry about from an ethics perspective. However, Alkhatib agrees that if the data scrape was targeted towards minority groups, there'd be a lot more to worry about.

"To me, this is a little more like the Ashley Madison debacle, but for white supremacists," he explained.

If Parler is “far-right”, then what the hell is Gab?

Parler has always been the “moderate” conservative platform. That’s the problem with diluting words, then they have no meaning.

Parler isn’t the problem: it’s Parler, Twitter, Facebook, every other stupid social media platform, comment sections on news sites and crappy blogs like this. All of them share the common feature of giving a place for people to work themselves into a tizzy over any-and-every-thing, establishing ridiculous levels of both kinship and hatred between strangers, building up violent mobs of both the physical and mental variety. They create an atmosphere where people are commended, at least by some segment of society or another, for doing despicable things, be they starting riots over a tiny handful of unfortunate policing incidents, attacking the capitol over a bunch of hot air regarding the election, ruining the life of a teenager for making an uncomfortable face when a crazy old man plays a drum in his face, or even just orchestrating data hacks like the one in this article.

The availability of these wonderful connected services has transformed this country into a dystopian nightmare (just look at this long thread of comments!). Get off the net, take care of the people around you, practice courtesy, vote, stop panicking, and all this garbage will go away. We have to transcend this nonsense.

It’s time all social media is uncovered this way. Parler booted anyone who used specific words that are “left leaning” or if someone attempted to post a correction to another post, or told another something was debunked or false. They 100% allowed for excessive hate speech, threats of violence, and even the plotting of attacks on others. Parler was a disgrace of an app and it’s time to also do the same to access accounts on Facebook and Twitter. There needs to be names and locations attached to the accounts too, so the nation can learn who the domestic terrorists are in America.

I considered Parler but it looked like a cesspool. I hadn’t found the reasonable areas.

Ironically suspended from Twitter after a post AGAINST using vile racist terminology to harass Black folks who lean center or center-left, and cops. I’m sure you know those epithets used to demean Black folks who aren’t actively anti-White or who partially dispute destructive BLM narratives.

I balked at giving Parler my state drivers license tho.

I intended to hit Parler and try a few reasonable moderate discussions. For example, there’s anti-Trump somewhat pro-Biden white nationalists who are overtly not violent, even while some views are vile.

With regards to reports of cyber security issues Parler experienced and have been attributed to Twilio, our security team investigated the claims and found no evidence indicating their security issues were related to Twilio or our products. Per our Website, Twilio has not issued any press releases pertaining to or referencing Parler. Furthermore, Parler was using Twilio to send out identity verification codes for new downloads or password resets. Once a user was verified, security protocols were independently handled by Parler and did not involve Twilio or its products. On Friday, January 8th, we sent Parler a letter informing them they were in violation of our Acceptable Use Policy and notifying them that we would suspend their account if they did not make efforts to remediate multiple calls for violence on their platform. Shortly after receiving our letter, Parler informed us they had already turned off their integration with Twilio. Any cyber security issues experienced by Parler were completely unrelated to Twilio or any of its products.

Parler had more stringent rules for content than Twitter does, the latter of which is still hosting all kinds of hate (eg Iran’s leaders).

Parler used broadcast standard approach. If you can’t publish it on TV or the radio, then it wasn’t permitted on Parler. It was a conservative platform after all, so naturally they’d be more reserved than left leaning media.

Not exactly? Parler was selective about censorship just like any other media platform. Under the current laws(which Trump was trying to repeal, for good or ill; he would’ve gotten Parler, Twitter, and Facebook all closed if he managed it), they couldn’t be held legally responsible for someone on their platform inciting violence, just like how the laws protect facebook and twitter as well.

Numerous users posted messages that, if they were on a broadcast, would’ve been shut down immediately, and if, say, Fox News posted “Someone should put Pence’s head on a pike if he doesn’t follow the president’s orders and do the right thing!” as the title of a program and actually had the content encouraging you to do that? Fox would be off the air and the people responsible facing criminal charges within days.

Part of the issue is that there are three specific kinds of ‘Conservative'(In quotes because misinformation, racism, and violent insurrection are not actually conservative values) talk that are consistently banned elsewhere but not Parler, and some people like to talk about these bans as if they were a ban on conservatives rather than on specific harmful talk; and the problem is that for one of these(Pro-Racist) the more central media has a nasty habit of allowing anti-white racist speech to linger until someone makes a complaint while immediately shutting down much other racist chatter without needing a complaint.

What happened at the Capital never should have happened, but at the same time, Parler isn’t responsible, unless you make Twitter responsible for a lot of the arson and violence in protests that have happened over the past year. There were many voices talking about encouraging that stuff there too. It’s not right, the only reason this one is being focused so much on in a negative light is because it isn’t a left leaning social app. I’m an independent, I believe in the importance of being able to communicate beliefs on either side in order to come to good ideas, I mean there’s no such thing as someone that is right all the time, comparisons are important and so is freedom of speech.

This is exactly the reason why people on the right are more likely to fight back, they’re being shoved into a corner and suffocated with a blanket. Most social media platforms are left oriented, they should allow a right wing one as well. This oppression is exactly the type of thing that might start a civil war. Even just to be able to have a place to speak.

If Twitter can exist, with people who endorse terrible things all the time, then why can’t Parler? Not everyone on Twitter congratulates the arson done even if there were supporters, and the same is with Parler and what happened at the capital. There are complete and utter idiots on both Parler and Twitter, and if Twitter isn’t held accountable to this extent, Parler shouldn’t be either.

I can’t take credit for this, but it’s too good not to share

No one has to dress up like a maga moron to make people hate them. Only 22% of the US population voted for Donald, even fewer of them are part of his cult. A lot of people party vote no matter who it is. He lost, counting the electoral votes, like casting the electoral votes is just dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s rather than being truly significant as it’s not going to change how the electoral college voted. Stopping the count doesn’t change the results, destroying the ballots doesn’t change what they said when everyone already knew what they said. It’s just Kanye Westing Taylor Swift. There is literal nothing to be gained by trying to frame Donald’s supporters.

Two, crowds walked from Donald’s rally to capitol. That’s just a needless complexity to an already terrible plan. They would have had no idea that Donald would encourage his supporters to walk over so they would just be the suspicious group of people going from a rally to suddenly trying to break in to the capitol building to fake stop the count. Either nearly everyone at the rally would have had to been in on this secret plan in order to fake over throwing the government in order to frame Donald’s supporters and to be able get away with not being completely obvious, suspicious, and easy to detain by capitol police or they had to hope like heck Donald said something to encourage a large group of people to go to the capitol so they could blend in.

But if they were already there? It would be super easy to detain them weapon less and easy to realize they weren’t Donald’s supporters without a crowd, which they had no way of knowing would come over. They would have had to be the ones behind the bombs, the guns, and the zip ties, in order to cause a big enough threat that they could get away without being IDed. Which leads us into,

Three, most of them weren’t wearing masks, actively took pictures of themselves, and bragged online. There were even republican politicians there, recording themselves as they did crime. If you’re trying to frame someone, you don’t go around announcing to the world that it’s you doing all the crime. So far everyone I’ve read about who have been arrested are Donald supporters, with internet histories to match.

Either is it a conspiracy so vast that it’s been years in the making with antifa so deep they existed before antifa was a word in the english lexicon. Or a limited number of crazies planned to attack the capitol complete with zip ties, Molotov cocktails, guns and pipe bombs, planted bombs at the rnc and the dnc as a distraction, and they took advantage of the riled up crowd.

Remember not everyone there was a terrorist, some people saw that they were trying to break in and left. A lot of them were just protesting. But given mob mentality it’s not hard to get a crowd that didn’t expect to do more than chant to go, yeah we should break in. So I’m not suggesting everyone that broke in planned to break in. A good portion probably did get swept up in it. They should still be punished, but they didn’t come in tactical gear with weapons. We do know it was partly planned as it’s been reported that it was plotted online and people literally brought weapons.

What’s more likely, super secret conspiracy to pretend to be Donald’s supporters for years involving a massive amount of people but with no recorded evidence of a plot or actual Donald supporters with their recorded plot deciding they were going to be the freedom fighters they always imagined themselves to be?

If you have Parler-worthy things to say, please continue doing so in every forum you wish. There’s no one who is telling you to stop saying anything. There is also nothing stopping other people who have the same freedoms from making their own judgement of your opinion and choosing whether or not they want to be associated with you.

Having freedom of speech does not mean people have to agree with you, do what you say, or think like you. Parler was taken down after nearly a year of consistently ignoring nearly 100 terms of service violations. Most accounts will be suspended for ignoring even 1 for more than a few days. Amazon intentionally did not shut Parler down sooner and showed it preferential treatment because of the type of communication venue it was. This event, and the actions it served as a communication medium for were the reasons that Amazon’s hand was finally forced.

It’s fine to have your opinions, but it’s equally important to have all the information.

Lol this is awesome. If its the study I remember, people who self identified as politically left reported lower satisfaction and levels of happiness because they saw the world as dysfunctional or containing unacceptable injustice but correcting such conditions were seen as massive undertakings while self identified right wing people saw same conditions as justified.

The mental health gap was largely explained by seeking mental health treatment being more socially acceptable in self identified left wing communities and therefore people were either more willing to admit to an issue and get help or more of them just had a positive diagnosis. It basically discovered a link between being on “the right” and running around with an undiagnosed mental illness because your friends would call you a cuck if you admitted to being depressed.

Sorry but I created an account just because you got the study totally wrong.

Actually the study in itself DID found discrepancies between liberals/conservatives or left/right., but they tried to explain away why this was. The study was not about how comfortable people were discussing about mental illness at all, this is just a hypothesis they advanced as to why they found more mental illness among leftists.

So the study is right in their findings, but their conclusion has always been the wrong conclusion. I would even argue that conservatives/right-wingers are MORE comfortable discussing about mental illness with their doctors, because they have stable family doctors and they develop a relationship with them, whereas leftists use walk-in clinics more (and get random doctors every time). That is part of city lifestyle. Conservatives go to the doctor regularly, do their yearly checkups, whereas liberals/leftists only go to the doctors when they think they have something to worry about. Not surprising, as discipline and order is more right-wing than left-wing.

Other hypothesis could be made: city-living is bad on mental illness, and liberals love city living. Or the promiscuous lifestyle they have can affect their mental level. Could also be genetics, as we are finding more and more that your political leaning is heavily dictated by your genes.

There was very little looting after the initial murder of George Floyd by the police. This fantasy that you white supremacists have about there being widespread violence by BLM protesters is simply that, fantasy. 2) There is not such thing as “fascists on the left”. That is an oxymoron. Fascists are, by definition, right-wing politically. You know, like yourself.

Fascism is a form of athoritarianizm. In america’s political climate the people asking for more federal restrictions and bigger government are not right wing individuals, at least not anything prevalent to me. Regardless if some are there is a ton less than anything left wing people are pushing for. Fascism was a right wing ideology but in america the ideals apply much more closely to left wing policies and ideas than right wing ones in america. Hitler “safeguarded public security” by taking away people’s civil rights. Nowadays left wing people ( a lot of not all) want to.
Not allow the second ammendment
Not allow people to say anything deemed hurtful to others. Not allow political opposition on social media.
Not allow people to choose If their businesses stay open ( I’m personally opposed to bars being open but you can’t pretend that it a “free” country if I can’t even open my private business legally.)
Many Not allowing people to even voice differing opinions without being ejected from their job because of some crazy people calling their job saying that they are “far right” activist.( I’m pro single payer healthcare and UBI and I’ve been called far right because I want to be allowed to defend myself)

Increasing taxation on middle and upper class americans to benefit poorer people. (Though I am pro single payer things like forcing people to pay more for healthcare that they may not want could very well be seen as authoritarian)

Compared to the right wing ideology of what?
Some religious wackjobs don’t want gays to marry?
You could say not allowing abortion is authoritarian (which is true) but just like when I mentioned single payer healthcare there is actual ethical implications that some on each side may agree and disagree with. So if we cancel those out that is 5 to 1.
The left wing ideology in america is a lot more authoritarian. Now if we are talking about nationalism then yes the right wing in america is the leader in that by far. Most left wing people aren’t patriotic at all, which is a good and bad thing. Nationalism can bring rise to discrimination and that for sure needs to b curbed, but I think taking away fundemental rights of speech and defense are more important than this ridiculous idea that the hispanic people are “takin our jobsss”

You have no idea what fascism is apparently. Fascism has an economic aspect and a social/tribal aspect. The economic aspect involves control over the means of production by a corporate state. It doesn’t matter if the state owns the corporations or the corporations own the state, the end result is the same. The social aspect of fascism involves the “other”. Some group of people, usually a religious and racial majority, has an image of some minority religious or ethnic group held up as an enemy who is trying to destroy their way of life. For Hitler and the Nazi’s, they held up Jews, communists, socialists, homosexuals, and intellectuals as their enemies. Fur Trump and his MAGA cult, it is Mexicans, Jews, Muslims, Chinese, and Liberals. You would know these things if you turned off faux News and read a book sometimes.

I appreciate your introspective response, but I disagree with you. Fascism is not synonymous with authoritarianism and even if it were, this administration has utilized authoritarian power more in the last 4 years than any other president in recent memory. The countless executive orders to unilaterally realize your goals seems far more authoritarian than a body of elected officials passing legislation to improve the nation, whether their efforts are misguided or not. The efforts you cite, (2nd amendment, curtailing speech, and lock downs) are more or less affected by private individuals not by democrat officials. While the average person would try to affect the changes you cite by using the court of public opinion, law makers are generally unable to violate our rights in the way you suggest they are trying to (save for exceptions where the public good outweighs the individual’s rights such as the biggest health crises of the century).
I encourage you to look at Umberto Eco’s 14 common features of Fascism;

No, the Patriot Prayer guy in Portland was killed because he’d been threatening other people at the protest. It was self defense. Of course, now that’ll never be proven because law enforcement decided to send a SWAT team after him & take him out in a hail of bullets in the middle of an apartment parking lot with a bunch of innocent bystanders around (including an 8 year old boy). At a another Proud Boy protest the week before, a different PB shot randomly into a crowd of people. Fortunately, he didn’t hit anyone but despite plenty of witnesses, the cops on site just let the guy walk away (even though there were cops not 10ft away when he did .it. He didn’t get arrested until days later, after there was massive public outcry. And I explain all of that because it shows exactly why a left wing protester had more reason than usual to assume he’d have no protect from an *armed* right wing protester. (Fun fact: the victim had a loaded gun on him along with canisters of tear gas. Funny out that was barely mentioned outside of local media). Background, I actually liver here in Portland. Local news had a *lot* more detail on the whole thing.

But speaking of deaths, funny how you’re making a big deal of the ONE right wing protester killed by a left-wing protester but ignoring the multiple left wing protestors killed by right wing protesters– one of whom openly lamented in court that he’d killed “white people”. (That would be Rittenhouse)
Also, I have to ask if your death count are all deaths specifically related to the protests. I bring that up because I know Fox News & the extreme right wing media were including a horrific shoot out here in Portland in their accounts as being part of the protests when in actual fact, it occured on the other side of the city.& had nothing to do with the protests at all. I know other deaths turned out to be gang-related or otherwise not related to the protests themselves.
And of course there’s the fact that the whole reason the protests happened in the first place is because law enforcement keeps killing unarmed black people..
