In this article “Anonymous, together with a group known as the Peoples Liberation Front, Tuesday announced the immediate availability a new website for hacktivists to dump their stolen (“doxed”) data.

Dubbed AnonPaste, the website has been created as an alternative to Pastebin and other websites that allow people to anonymously upload large amounts of text, the two groups said in a joint press release. Shared content can be set to expire after 10 minutes, an hour, a day, a month, a year, or never. In addition, the site promises to remain advertising-free and unmoderated, maintain no connection logs, and store only encrypted data.

The AnonPaste site says, “[The] server has zero knowledge of data being stored. Your data is safe even in case of server breach or seizure.” But it cautions that in the event that a hacker manages to successfully install “crooked JavaScript” libraries, future pastes could be captured.”
