Hannibal account leak proven as false

A few days ago we posted an article that made claims that over 1,000,000 account details had been leaked from a hacker using the handle Hannibal who claimed to leak the data in retaliation attack against anonymous hacktivist for operation Israel.

IT has come to light today that this attack was never carried out, that the data was leaked months ago and is still currently being hosted online in the exact same format that hannibal leaked it.

So once again the information security scene has been fooled by people leaking re-leaked data and sadly i feel fooled to this as well but i will be making sure to triple check everything more so then before.

Greetings Anonymous. There is an article in cyberspace stating that a hacker, by the name of HANNIBAL, has doxxed one million Facebook accounts in retaliation for our strikes on Israel cyberspace. If you read in the comments section below the article, a Guest user said that the doxx is not an original, and the threat is fraudulent. The Guest commenter lists the original source of the doxx. It is apparent that there is no Facebook account user information listed. Rather, it is email account information. Here is the article:

Here is the original email doxx link completed on October 9th, before the major cyber-strikes. (The original text file is the eighth 8th link down from the top “EuroDB.txt”) :

Here is the direct link to the text file:

It appears that the Guest user’s comments are indeed correct, and the claim to 1 million hacked Facebook accounts is not real. The reality is that HANNIBAL copied a text file from someone else
and is using the file as a threat against Anonymous. Now that we know it is not true, we can ignore future statements from HANNIBAL.
