Fear’s statement reads:

“Hello, media, hackers, pen testers.

Today I will be revealing the truth.

I did not hack Neustar, i lied to media to troll them. I hacked into 38 government ftp servers, and had access to states data. The bank breaches included has nothing to do with my breach on the ftps. I gained access to the banks because i breached North Dakota bank back in early 2016. I had access to gov banks in each state. So i used it to troll the media.

Yes, the government did get hacked, along with social security numbers from the back, tax papers, voting data. But Neustar was a mirage to troll the media.

What really happened (SUMMARY)

-United States banking server with known gov banks was breached. (100million SSNs, maybe more.)

-Government FTP servers hacked via exploit, not neustar.

-30+ .US and .gov domains were hacked via exploit.
