This is an IRC log someone shared with me by private message. Look who claims to be from Northern Ireland. Also look at who has Youtube videos that match the ones on the attacker's server. Someone else who uses IRC should be able to corroborate the logs or refute them if they've been tampered with.

 Code:  [09:12] I wish I lived in America [09:13] Very dull and boring here, shit weather, etc [09:13] free healthcare, that's a plus [09:14] You don't like the climate there? [09:14] No, it rains and is always cloudy [09:14] The climate in my region is shit... arctic winters, and mosquito-ridden summers with tornadoes. [09:14] I'd much rather have rain and clouds than sunshine. [09:15] Have you ever been to Europe? [09:15] Yes. [09:15] Why? [09:15] Because I like rain? [09:15] Oooh, specifically? [09:16] Spain via Amsterdam Schiphol International Airport. [09:16] I'm from Northern Ireland [09:16] Quite a bit of travel in Spain, though. Several trips. But when I was younger. [09:17] I remembered where my camera was...on my lab bench for the last few months [09:17] Oh, so you love the English? :P [09:17] Yes, my best buddies. [09:17] lol [09:17] Is that on the news? [09:17] Is it? 01[09:18] I love rain [09:18] Is the troubles like a world known thing? 01[09:18] I hate the sun 01[09:18] I was so born in the wrong country 01[09:18] aside from the fact that I hate most Australians... ugh [09:18] england's weather blows. [09:18] ^^ 01[09:18] Australia's weather is shit 03[09:18] * BomberM (~bomberman@s1.v-m.no) has joined #sciencemadness [09:19] UC-235 you're english? 03[09:19] * CHANFIX2 (chanfix@backup.services.int) has joined #sciencemadness 03[09:19] * backup.services.int sets mode: +o CHANFIX2 03[09:19] * CHANFIX2 sets mode: +o BomberM [09:19] <@CHANFIX2> 1 client should have been opped. 03[09:19] * @CHANFIX2 (chanfix@backup.services.int) has left #sciencemadness 01[09:19] it's just varying degrees of hot [09:19] Why is that bad 03[09:19] * BomberM sets mode: +o BomberMan 01[09:19] summer = omg it's so hot I'm going to die and winter = meh, it's less hot, at least [09:19] Here it rains 24/7 [09:19] I don't know if it's a "world known thing," but I like to think that I have at least a loose grasp on world history and current affairs. [09:20] oh. [09:20] Manifest, no. murica. but my brother did reasearch in england for a few months and I spent about 2 weeks of moist and cloudy there. [09:20] >:/ Fertiliser is exceedingly difficult to come by here due to the IRA. [09:21] <@BomberMan> man I want a tractor [09:21] Oh, good, you got OP fixed. 01[09:21] you and your tractors [09:21] Is bomber a mod? [09:21] Time to replace "YOU A;; SUCL DICK!"??? [09:21] excuse my ignorance [09:21] Use organic fertilizer, then. [09:22] bomber made the channel [09:22] Shit in the fields. 01[09:22] yeah, it'll be replaced next time you're drunk 01[09:22] hopefully with something even awesomer [09:22] I am not a farmer, I want it for chemistry [09:22] I use way less nitrates than I ever expected. [09:22] N. Irish chemistry === bomb building. [09:22] but then again, Im not into pyro [09:22] I made ETN recently [09:23] Precisely why you don't need nitrates!!! 01[09:23] I think the only nitrate I have is a VERY tiny bit of silver nitrate I made myself a while ago 01[09:23] no pyro for me [09:23] But I was safe! [09:23] I guess I do have that silver nitrate too... [09:23] Right... [09:23] Safe *amateur* energetics is such an oxymoron. [09:23] and like 2kg of NaNO3, a kilo of KNO3, and some amount of ammonium. [09:24] I'll send 1kg to the queen next week [09:24] LOL [09:24] some WFNA in the freezer. [09:24] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8z2M_hpoPwk [09:24] lolololol [09:24] ETN is not particularily dangerous, it needs to be intentionally set off [09:25] unless you're the guy in energetics who insisted you can melt it with a free flame [09:25] because hot water is too much effort [09:25] lololol [09:25] Yeah, the bother of boiling a kettle, it's too much hassle! [09:26] and the guy who had to have glass shards removed from the entire front of him when he accidentally heated a few mg in a test tube over a flame [09:26] The Sex Pistols were always sellouts... the Dead Kennedys are just sellouts now--except for Jello Biafra. [09:26] >accidentally heated over flame [09:26] you guys have facebooks? [09:26] >accidentally over flame [09:26] >ACCIDENTALLY [09:26] yeah, how can that be done accidentally [09:26] Facebook? [09:27] yes [09:27] I stopped using it when they allowed non-students to register. [09:27] I can find the thread. he'd casted most of it with hot water. few crumbs in a test tube...didnt think. [09:27] I do not see why Twitter is so great [09:27] Personally it is shit [09:27] Because why the fuck would I 'friend' my sister-in-law's parents!? [09:27] You don't [09:27] You block them [09:28] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ksKWonVOAgE [09:28] http://www.sciencemadness.org/talk/viewthread.php?tid=16612 [09:28] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eebsL0gzx6w [09:29] lol what a fucking retard [09:29] speaking of which, I still have a half kilo of erythritol that Ill probably never use. [09:29] It is very expensive [09:29] not sure why I bought it. but that was like 7 years ago [09:30] for $10 [09:30] I may try making Chlorate for profit. [09:30] Jello Biafra is fucking awesome. [09:31] 1 kg here sells on Amazon/ebay for the equivilent of$42 for you guys [09:31] idiots actually buy it! [09:31] i bought it as a non-calorie sweetner... [09:31] Potassium Chlorate I mean [09:31] oh [09:31] Sorry to stray off topic [09:32] I made like 15g of KClO3...never have needed it [09:32] "How low have we sunk when it's up to a thug like Putin to show us a way out?" [09:32] hah [09:32] Cheddite looks easy [09:33] Is that your video? [09:33] At the end of my exams 20th June I am going to have a firework party with my friends [09:33] Is is. [09:33] it* [09:34] I gave it an "I dislike this." [09:34] Oh no [09:34] Consider using a failsafe remote detonator next time, and I'll give it a thumbs up. [09:34] But it was a long fuse! [09:34] Lighting a fuse and running is too amateurish and dangerous. [09:35] If you tripped, fell, and broke your ankle three feet away... [09:35] You'd be crawling for your life. [09:35] It was not enough to damage me [09:35] maybe my eardrums [09:35] Precisely. [09:36] Also, detonating without taking any measurements... what's the point? [09:36] "Ooh, it blowed up!" [09:36] I did, but then I gave up [09:36] "Keeeeeeewl." [09:36] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9YJbw0DyT0 [09:36] Another one [09:39] Oh come on! You can't say it is not fun to simply blow a little up 01[09:40] There was a good video on youtube by a guy who blew his hand off with acetone peroxide... I used to just show that to people... he decided it wasn't fun [09:41] Does it still exist [09:41] LMAO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SeJyorNbvWg 01[09:41] I couldn't find it last time I looked... but I think I did finf others by him... so probably not [09:41] Back in a minute... laundry. 01[09:42] it wasn't a video OF him blowing his hand off [09:42] oh [09:42] meh! 01[09:42] it was about how he did it, how he foolishly thought it was safe because he'd done it many times before, and how wrong he ended up being... begging people not to make it... and some pictures of the new stump where his hand used to be 01[09:43] he had apparently had a bunch of videos about how to make it, which he'd removed at that time [09:44] Why do people bother with organic peroxides [09:45] I found an EEPROM in the bottom of the washing machine. I don't think most people have these problems... [09:46] Nah [09:47] I am really tempted to attempt to make nitrates from urine

I was able to also find uncorrupted email addresses from backups for bobm4360, DJF90, elementcollector1, and plante1999. I have reset their accounts with strong passwords and emailed a notice to each of them.

I will need help making contact with the owners of the remaining frozen accounts listed here, if you know or can get their email addresses from IRC, U2U messages, Facebook, etc. Of course I will also need to do some cross-checking to make sure that the email addresses are actually those of the account holder and not an attacker.

If you read the top comments on this video, you can communicate with tdep and B&F. Thanks for all your work!

So are we accusing Manifest? That seems a bit rash, there are lots of N.Irish people on this site, b/c in ireland it's harder to get chemicals than in America (Very surprisingly).

Just found something interesting, it seems he commented on NurdRage's testing video, and NurdRage replied. Apparently, he was the first one to donate to NurdRage's bitcoin, so maybe NurdRage knows something about him.

Cinnamon here too (though I run Ubuntu LTS on another machine as well).

Unity is okay if you install Classic Menu and ignore it.

I have learned after several Ubuntu installs over the years two rules: I you use Ubuntu only use LTS releases, and always use the default desktop environment - it is the only one that is not fatally buggy.

But if you use Mint you are golden.

Pretty sure, the IRC logs prove that that Google+ Page is his and one of his friends on G+ say that they are attending Lumen Christi College which is the other site he tried to hack, along with the uniform shown in one of his videos.

OK, but why would he do it? Just have to make sure it's him. And thanks for posting his IP provolone...

All of the mp3 files seem to be prank calls using a service like PrankOwl. This service connects two phones and each person thinks the other one called them. All of them seem to involve Culmore Taxi Service, while the others vary being McDonald's and other places.

Did some pinging and such of his server. It doesn't seem to be on port 80, and I did a router trace too.

So his server has an SSH port on 22.

Besides, when it first started happening, Manifest tried to discourage me from starting this thread and said it was probably just a bug due to software updating. I know that it's not conclusive proof of anything, but it certainly makes sense and backs up everything else.

Very interesting and disturbing. I did enjoy reading your detective work, Polverone. If Manifest = Mike Ehrmantraut = juvenile catholic school hacker, that would be a big surprise to me. Mike has commented on several of my videos with insightful thoughts and good info.

Then again, on the internet, nobody knows you're a dog.

Edit: Hyperlink problems, probably because of all the punctuation in the original link.

Things like this are a huge hassle, and an insult to the efforts of people who have worked hard to build this forum to where it is today. A lot of information on here is quite valuable an irreplaceable.

Thanks for all the hard work that you've put into this, Polverone. It's certainly appreciated. Do you have any particular hardware or funding issues that need taking care of?

The cat has probably been suffering from this too. When they feel neglected, they have ways of getting your attention (I wonder what happens when I push this database backup onto the floor. Will that get his attention?)

Lol, you're right about the cat. Polverone, I suppose you wouldn't give us manifest's old password? Not so that we can log into his SM account.

Alright, thanks for getting me back in on the action. Remind me - what's his IRC name? I'll see if I ever had any contact - which I doubt, but still.
