Gab, an alternative social network popular with right-wing users, was hacked and a large trove of data -- including passwords and private messages -- was stolen. The company says it's received a ransom demand for nearly $500,000 in bitcoin for the data. The hacked data, dubbed GabLeaks, was shared by transparency group DDoSecrets. It includes 70GB of public posts, private posts, user profiles, hashed passwords, direct messages and plaintext passwords for groups, according to DDoSecrets. The group said it's only offering the data set to journalists and researchers due to privacy concerns. A hacker was able to siphon data from Gab's site via a "SQL injection vulnerability," DDoSecrets told Wired.
