The dishonesty of Andrew Torba knows no bounds in the latest postings. The reality of the mater, as I understand it, is most of the down time was related to fixing the major security issues I’ve raised over the past few days. I do not know how much of it was fixed, but I’m sure there still are major problems to be found. Mr. Torba was well schooled the past few days, the usage of CloudFlare isn’t a magical shield of protection against everything.
It is common knowledge trying to do any kind of DDoS attack on a ClouldFlare IP will be futile with little to no needed intervention to block such an attack. His screams of DDoS is fairly laughable as the vast majority know, I do not engage in such ineffective behaviors, and I have always been against it. He will continue to tell lies to rile his angry Neo Nazi Muppets for exposing how bad Gab really is as an alternative to Twitter. It would be really ironic, if he rallied them for the real reason, exposing Gab as a massive fraudulent security black hole. I’m just not intimidated by his Neo Nazi Muppets and there isn’t anything anyone can do to stop me from publishing write ups about Gab. My words, on a computer screen, are far more deadly to Gab’s platform than any silly illegal attack nonsense.
The greatest issue I see here is why was any of this never fixed to begin with, or even considered to be an issue? If it took me 10 minutes to see major issues all over the place, does Gab really take the security of it’s users seriously? It’s just no, they don’t take security seriously, if the most basic skiddiot Hack Forums (There has been some claims Torba is regular of Hack Forums for irony) style methods work unchecked. This further solidifies Gab as being another pump and dump scam by Torba when a lot of the basics are not covered at all. Gab doesn’t even have a logout button, but they have an account delete link, that’s curious indeed! You have to change your password via a forgot your password reset link on the login page, and this is the recommended way by Gab Support LOL. UPDATE: Apparently there is a Logout button, in the Settings page, all the way at the bottom. That makes sense … if you’re on drugs.
