A Swiss hacker named “maia arson crimew” recently leaked a copy of the US no-fly list after finding it on an open server.
The 2019 list includes over 1.5 million names and aliases.
The list was leaked in The Daily Dot.
As the list is from 2019, it does not include the thousands of names of US patriots who were added to the list after the January 6, 2021 protest in Washington DC.

WalkAway founder Brandon Straka told Tucker Carlson earlier this week that hundreds of Trump supporters have been added to the “no fly list” after the 2021 DC protests.
A copy of the US no-fly list was leaked after it was stored on an unsecured server connected to a commercial airline. The No Fly List is an official list maintained by the US government that prohibits travel into or out of the United States on commercial flights.
As first reported by The Daily Dot, a Swiss hacker known as Maia Arson Crime discovered a list on an unsecured Jenkins server one night while poking around in Shodan, allowing people to see through servers connected to the Internet.
The server contained large amounts of company data related to CommuteAir, including private information about its employees. There was also a file containing a copy of the 2019 version of the No Fly List. The list includes names and dates of birth and more than 1.5 million entries, but many of those entries are aliases referring to the same person. “It’s a lot bigger than I thought it would be,” Crimew told Motherboard.
“TSA is aware of a potential cybersecurity incident and we are investigating in coordination with our federal partners,” a spokesperson for TSA told Motherboard.
