Dark Overlord Hacker Group Stays On Reddit After Twitter Suspension For Bitcoin Donations for 9/11 Secrets
The Dark Overlord Group Continues Operating Using Reddit After Twitter Suspension
The Dark Overlord Group, a team of hackers that has revealed important information about different topics, informed that it keeps working using Reddit after being banned from Twitter. The Dark Overlord captured the attention of crypto enthusiasts and the whole world when they announced that they were ready to share confidential information about 9/11.
The cybercriminals were asking for Bitcoin to release this information that was hundreds of documents that were able to gather from different companies involved in the 9/11. Indeed, they released the first documents but their account on Twitter was immediately after suspended.
The Dark Overlord has also been asking a ransom of an unspecified amount in order to stop releasing documents. The companies involved were mentioned by the group. Some of them are Hiscox Syndicated Ltd, Lloyds of London and Silverstein Properties.
The criminal group seems to continue its operations using Reddit. A few days ago, they released a new post in which they mentioned that they are operating using the r/hacking subreddit. However, the post has been already eliminated.
In a message uploaded to Pastebin, they inform that US law enforcement agencies tried to silence them from their releases.
They wrote about it:
“United States law enforcement agencies have attempted to silence us from our releases by requesting Twitter to suspend our account. An appeal to Twitter has gone unanswered. We’d like everyone to know that we’re still here. We’ve taken to Reddit at current under r/hacking. We’ll provide updates as we have them.”
Now The Dark Overlord says they will use the r/hacking subreddit to communicate with the outside world https://t.co/g1i6s3jp2k

In order to release the documents, the group was asking for Bitcoin (BTC) to be paid to their address, that currently received around $12,000. Until now, the documents released did not have any particularly damaging evidence. The documents show information about how affected parties could claim damages from.
There are many speculative stories about what happened during 9/11 and who was behind the attacks. However, everything is just suppositions and nothing proved.
The Dark Overlord has also been banned from Steemit. But the group continues to use Busy.org in order to post to the Steem blockchain. According to the hackers, they have more than 8.279 files related to the terrorist attack that changed the world.
Back in 2017, the hackers demanded Bitcoin to release ten episodes of the popular Netflix show ‘Orange is the New Black.’
