Seanspicer.com has recently been scrubbed from the Internet
This is not the first time Spicer’s phone number has been leaked

During the Trump campaign, one of his main platforms was Hillary Clinton’s leaked emails, which branched into the Democratic candidate’s ability to ensure cyber security for the country.
As it turns out, White House Press Secretary and Communications Director for President Trump, Sean Spicer, may not have a firm grasp on cyber security either.
On Tuesday, Mashable reported that Spicer’s WHOIS data is public for the world to see. The data includes names, addresses, phone numbers, emails, dates, and IP addresses for domain owners.
So could this security breach had been possibly prevented, and if so, how? Yes, it quite easily could have been prevented. If Spicer had paid an additional $7.99 with his domain register, Go Daddy would have hidden his personal information.
Until recently, Spicer had a WordPress blog, seanspicer.com. The site has been scrubbed from the Internet. Somebody also uploaded a robot.txt file to Spicer’s site on Friday, which blocks the ability to view the site on The WayBack Machine. The site can still be viewed through Google Cache.
Spicer’s Phone Number Leaked Again
The phone number released is Spicer’s, which was also leaked in a DNC email data dump from WikiLeaks. Spicer, who was the chief strategist and communications director for the Republican National Committee, had emailed Luis Miranda, communications director for the Democratic National Committee, and requested for the next debate to be held “somewhere warm and fun.” Spicer’s phone number was at the bottom of the email.
On Tuesday, known hacktivist Th3 J35T3R sent out two tweets in regards to Spicer’s info. The first tweet said, “Sean Spicer’s WHOIS data is public for everyone to see >> “ and included a link to Mashable’s article. The second tweet pointed out that the email address [email protected] had three other breaches against it.
According to HaveIBeenPwned, a site that lets you check and see if your email has been compromised, [email protected] first had a MySpace breach in 2008. In 2012, Spicer’s Yahoo address had a breach on Dropbox and a LinkedIn hack.
