A hacker has stolen information from the market-leading gun sales site Guntrader.uk. The data consists of names and addresses of registered users of the site, according to Guntrader.uk founder Alexander Andover. The data includes no details of guns or whether the users are gun owners.
The names and addresses are now freely downloadable on the HuningLeaks.is website along with instructions on how to popuate Google Maps with the addresses of Guntrader users. The data includes up to 110,000 FAC and SGC holder names, addresses, phone numbers and emails.
Guntrader.co.uk confirms the story, but emphasises that none of the names are linked to details of guns.
One of the people affected contacted Fieldsports News. He says: “As a longterm FAC and SGC ticket holder, safety and secutirty are absolutely paramount. I am aware that my details and those of other ticket holders – names, addresses and emails, though no specific info regarding our tickets – are available online.
The story broke on the EnglishShooting Facebook page
“This directly impacts my safety and the safety of those I live with, and I feel that this may be used either by criminals or by those wishing to harm shooting sports in the UK.”
A no-win-no-fee solicitor, CEL, has put up a webpage for those affected by the hack in an effort to drum up business.
The hacker gained access to part of the Guntrader.uk database via a vulnerability in an old iframe, which was on a client gunshop’s website.
The hack took place on 16 July 2021 and news of it was circulating online within days.
