February 2020: WeLeakInfo Seizure & Other News

🕵🏻 OSINT Tools: Google Analytics ID Reverse Lookup

We have added a Google Analytics ID reverse lookup tab: https://intelx.io/tools?tab=analytics

It will redirect to 3rd party sites that look up a Google Analytics ID and show websites that use the same analytics ID for Google Analytics. This can be an indicator that the resulting websites are operated by the same person.

WeLeakInfo Seizure

The website WeLeakInfo.com was taken down and seized by the FBI on January 16, 2020. The press release from the US Department of Justice is available here. A news report from The Register mentions two 22-year olds who are allegedly involved.

We have published a blog post diving into the technical infrastructure used by WeLeakInfo.
