Anonib Revenge Porn Site - Everything You Need To Know

New York Times Magazine

Three new suspects have been arrested in connection with the site, which was known for hosting nude photos of women posted without their consent.

The notorious "revenge-porn" website Anon-IB has been shut down by Dutch police for hosting nude photos stolen from numerous women.

Authorities seized Anon-server IB's and detained three new suspects linked to the website.

Sexual images of women were routinely shared without their consent on Anon-IB and traded like baseball cards among users. Victims, including teenagers, discovered on the site nude photos they had shared with ex-boyfriends. According to Dutch police, however, some people hacked personal internet accounts in order to steal private photographs.

 

Anon-IB was investigated in March 2017, after a woman reported that her data had been stolen from her cloud storage accounts and posted online. In total, five suspects were apprehended in connection with the case, all of whom had large collections of sexually exploitative images on their computers and phones.

Dutch police told local media that they had confiscated images of hundreds, if not thousands, of women. At least some of the photos were obtained by infiltrating the victims' email inboxes, social media accounts, and cloud storage.

 

It is unclear whether Dutch authorities have identified the administrator of Anon-IB. However, by seizing the image board's server, they may be able to unearth more evidence to narrow down who was using the site.

Victims applauded the site's closure, which occurred on Wednesday. "There are about a thousand of us, all victims of this site and others, and we all slept a little easier last night thanks to all of you," BADASS, a non-profit dedicated to preventing revenge porn, tweeted.

Once their investigation is completed, Dutch police intend to notify any identifiable victims. The arrested suspects stole personal data from their targets in addition to photos.
