Fun with hacked Tory contributor list


The hackers who brought you the Stephen-Harper-choked-on-a-hashbrown hoax on Tuesday followed up today by releasing a sample of names and email addresses (though no amounts), apparently harvested by hacking conservative.ca.

That was rather embarrassing for the party, which had, until now, maintained that no personal information had been compromised.

I was curious about which email addresses people were using when they donated to the party. That’s information that Elections Canada doesn’t capture, so the sample hacked by @LulzRaft gives a unique peek at this kind of data.

I noted lots of university email addresses. Hotmail, of course, is the favoured route to donate online.

Ranked by domain, the top addresses look like this:
