Here Is The Hacker Who Claims To Have Stolen The Canadian Freedom Convoy’s Donor Information

On Sunday night, donor information from the crowdfunding website GiveSendGo was hacked, and the information of those who had donated to the Canadian truckers “Freedom Convoy” was released and posted online. Thousands of donors’ information was compromised.

The hacker claiming responsibility for the breach is named Aubrey Cottle, but goes by the name ‘Kirtaner.’

In a Tik Tok video rant, Cottle declares, “Yes I did it! I didxxed the truckers I hacked GiveSendGo baby!”

It’s gone viral

In the video, Cottle claims to have hacked numerous other websites including Epic Hosting, right leaning sites like Parler and Gab, and former President Donald Trump’s social media website Truth Social.

The screaming Cottle continues, saying that his name can be put in the news tab on Google and “everything I have done” can be found there. He claims to have “been mentioned in every mainstream media publication for the things I do.”

And for those who are blissfully unaware of who he is, Cottle tells them just how famous he is, “I’m not an unknown actor! I’m literally a famous f***ing cyber terrorist!”

The video ends with Cottle telling someone who he called a vile name beginning with a “c” that, “There isn’t proof of sh*t.” 

Authorities have yet to reveal who could be at fault.

Who Is ‘Kirtaner’?

Aubrey Cottle, or “Kirtaner,” has been around for a while. His credit for founding Anonymous, a hacking network that targets groups like Scientology and Westboro Baptist Church is his.

Cottle was asked by Reddit user Cottle in November 2020 what the future of hackers should be focusing on. Failing to see the irony he replied, “Privacy rights, big data, monolithic megacorporations owning everything about you and your life.”

Journalists are not practising journalism

Not just the garden variety hackers are involved in the doxxing truckers’ donors.

Reporters from Reuters and the Washington Post are using the hacked data to track down donors in an effort to get their motives for donating.

Ottawa Citizen wrote an article about the owner and operator of an ice cream shop, whose name appears on GiveSendGo’s list of donors.

Her name became public and she received so many threats that her business was forced to close. 

Jacob Wells, founder of GiveSendGo, is asking for an FBI investigation into hacking and who might be responsible.
