If you intend to submit information to Barton Gellman’s SecureDrop, we recommend that you compare the .onion address provided on the organization’s landing page to this one mqddpn6yt4f5uqei.onion and verify that the addresses match before continuing. This provides a strong layer of defense against certain types of attacks that might try to trick you into visiting a malicious SecureDrop instance masquerading as a legitimate one.
If you encounter a mismatch, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. This could be evidence of an attempted attack, or it could be a simple failure to communicate between an organization running SecureDrop and Freedom of the Press Foundation. In either case, we will investigate the matter and establish a path to resolution.
