However, it seems like their payments are useless after popular Anonymous hackers breached the company's system.

These cybercriminals even created a Twitter account called "Epik Fail Data Leaks" to post some screenshots or posts about the massive database leak of the giant tech firm. As of the moment, the newly created account already has more than 4,500 followers.

Meanwhile, one of the hackers' posts seems to mock Epik.

"Do you want a twitter thread on how poorly this data was stored and the data structure?" asked the Anonymous hackers in a Twitter poll.

They added that even the most inexperienced person regarding tech stuff could even access the company's database.

According to an Epik Fail Data Leaks Twitter thread, Epik works by offering an option to protect consumers' privacy. The company is offering a Domain-Add-On called "Anonymize," which promises full anonymity of their identities.
