An old copy of the TSA “no fly” List was hacked recently by a self-proclaimed transfem “cat girl” from Switzerland.
She goes by the name “maia arson crimew,” and her Twitter bio describes her as follows:
“indicted hacktivist/security researcher, artist, mentally ill enby polyam trans lesbian anarchist kitten (θΔ), 23 years old.”
In addition, her Wikiepedia page says she was indicted by a US grand jury back in March 2021 on criminal charges related to her alleged hacking.

The hacker told The Daily Dot the list appeared to have more than 1.5 million entries. The data reportedly included names and birthdates of various individuals who have been barred from air travel by the government due to suspected or known ties to terrorist organizations. The Daily Dot reported that the list contains multiple aliases, so the number of unique individuals on the list is far less at 1.5 million.
The Swiss hacker says she was shocked that the list was made up of mostly Arabic and Russian names.
And in a strange twist, one man who showed up on the list was somebody Joe Biden just did business with recently.
Noteworthy individuals reported to be on the list include Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout, who was recently freed by the Biden administration in exchange for WNBA star Brittney Griner, and suspected members of the IRA and others, according to The Daily Dot.
Even though the actual list is a few years old, it doesn’t lessen the threat-level of this security breach.
In a statement to FOX Business, CommuteAir confirmed the legitimacy of the hacked “no fly” list and data that contained private information about the company’s employees.
“CommuteAir was notified by a member of the security research community who identified a misconfigured development server,” said Erik Kane, corporate communications manager for CommuteAir. “The researcher accessed files, including an outdated 2019 version of the federal no-fly list that included first and last name and date of birth. Additionally, through information found on the server, the researcher discovered access to a database containing personal identifiable information of CommuteAir employees.
“Based on our initial investigation, no customer data was exposed,” Kane added. “CommuteAir immediately took the affected server offline and started an investigation to determine the extent of data access. CommuteAir has reported the data exposure to the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and also notified its employees.”
Given that more and more patriots are put on the “no fly list” for the thinnest of political pretexts, it would be interesting to know the identities of any and all Americans put on the list for so-called “right wing extremism.” After all, this is the number one security threat according to such esteemed agencies as the Department of Homeland Security:
The Biden administration’s top law enforcement officials on Wednesday pledged to dedicate their resources to combat domestic violent extremists amid questions over whether the agencies are equipped to monitor such threats in the wake of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
Attorney General Merrick Garland and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas appeared before the Senate Appropriations Committee for a hearing on domestic extremism as Congress ramped up its scrutiny this week of the circumstances around the attack on the Capitol.
Both Garland and Mayorkas testified that white supremacist groups pose the most serious domestic national security threat in the U.S., reinforcing what analysts have long concluded about far-right organizations.
“Domestic violent extremists pose an elevated threat in 2021 and in the FBI’s view, the top domestic violent extremist threat we face comes from racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists, specifically those who advocate for the superiority of the white race,” Garland told lawmakers at the top of the hearing.
