Top U.S. Government Computers Linked to Revenge-Porn Site

Users connected from Senate, Navy, and executive branch computers.

Data obtained by a security analyst and shared with The Daily Beast reveals the behind-the-scenes of the main hub of revenge porn: a notorious image board called Anon-IB where users constantly upload non-consensual imagery, comment on it, and trade nude photographs. Revenge porn is frequently used to intimidate, harass or embarrass others. The data shows Anon-IB users connecting from U.S. Senate, Navy and other government computers, including the Executive Office of the President. Senators have been pushing for a bill that would further combat the practice after the military’s own recent revenge porn crisis. Anon-IB is free and users can post images based on various genres or locations. Whoever is connecting from the Senate appears to have a particular focus on Anon-IB’s “Xray section,” where users post photos so others can alter the image to make the woman look naked or wearing more revealing clothing. Several Xray posts have been linked to the Senate. In one message, someone connecting from the Senate shared a picture and said, “Girl I know from [location redacted]. She was a [college redacted] and has the best tits I’ve ever seen. I would love to find some wins.”
