UC Irvine Students Hospitalized After Hackers Share Gory Mutilation Videos in Discord Groups: Report

Hackers reportedly left some University of California, Irvine students and instructors vomiting and crying after they posted gory videos of human and animal mutilation to student-run groups on a social media platform.

According to the Orange County Register, the gory videos left the university community in a spiral on January 9, with some students reportedly needing to be hospitalized after the incident.

Alina Kim, who helped coordinate the response to the hack by the student-run Discord group, told the Register that “some things I’ve seen I definitely can’t unsee.”

“Some people were reportedly hospitalized with vomiting, panic attacks and traumatic responses,” he said. “This is something that has real psychological effects.”

Around 3,000 people were reportedly exposed to graphic materials while on the Discord website before moderators blocked hackers from accessing it.

Discord is a social media platform where users can make voice calls, video calls, and instant messages with each other.

Kim told the local media that the hackers have been identified, but their identity is being kept hidden because they appear to be seeking publicity.

He said the attackers demanded a $1,000 ransom to prevent them from publishing the videos for another month.

UC Irvine did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
