Upstart crime site woos Raid Forums orphans
A new crime site for hackers is positioning itself as an alternative to Raid Forums, a popular watering hole for threat actors before it was mysteriously taken down in February.
The new site, Breach Forums, was launched by an old Raid Forum hand who goes by the handle “pompompurin,” according to a blog post this week by Flashpoint, a threat intelligence company. In the welcoming thread to the forum, pompompurin stated that the new hacker community was being created as an alternative to Raid Forums.
“If RaidForums does ever return in any official capacity,” pompompurin wrote, “this forum will be closed and this domain will redirect to it.”
