06 Dec Controversial ‘Distributed Denial of Secrets’ Leak Website Launched
A new website called Distributed Denial of Secrets has recently been launched against the backdrop of new high-profile data breaches including Marriott’s security incident which compromised the personal information of 500 million of its customers.
Spokesperson Emma Best says that the website is intended to be a collective distribution system of leaked data. Launched last Monday, the online database will be a catch-all for hacked data that might be faded into obscurity.
However, it is said that the website may face challenges as the owners are likely to face the ethical challenge of deciding what data to publish, which ones to redact, and preserve the delicate balance of privacy and transparency.
