A Swiss hacker discovered the US Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) no-fly list on an unsecured computer server on Friday. The names of around 1.5 million known or suspected terrorists were publicly available. The data leak caused waves in the USA. Politicians are calling for a congressional investigation. Because whoever is on this list has to endure drastic checks or will not be allowed on a plane in the first place.

The hacker is a 23-year-old from Lucerne, Tillie Kottmann, who goes by the pseudonym Maia Arson Crimew. Also known as Crimew for short, Kottmann has published confidential data from US authorities and companies in numerous cases. In the United States, the young man, who now lives as a woman, is threatened with an arrest warrant. Kottmann is said to be behind the hack of over 150,000 surveillance cameras by the US company Verkada in March 2021.
