I have some information regarding the GNAA and would like editorship on the article so I can add a section for it, but I wanted to discuss it here. I’ve already requested editorship.
Recently on /mlp/ there were several threads regarding supposed attacks by the GNAA. Some had substantial evidence but others lacked that, so it’s unclear whether they were legitimate, or simply fear-mongering by the GNAA themselves.
There were two noteworthy attacks: firstly, the BronyState livestream of the most recent My Little Pony episode was hacked and the stream was replaced with a troll video saying that the stream had been hacked and claiming that /v/ had done it. This was traced back to the GNAA, however.
Secondly, the GNAA performed an amateur-level phishing scam on deviantArt users, capturing “over 2000 usernames and passwords.” While some legitimate accounts were hacked as a result, the file containing the phishing data was not pruned at all and visibly contained duplicates and significant amounts of garbage data.
I have the resources necessary to add all this with citations to the GNAA article, including a video of the hacked livestream and the pastebin of the phishing data, and I’m searching through a 4chan archive to get the relevant threads.
Is this notable enough to include? Discuss.
