BackChannel founder Aaron DeVera shared BleepingComputer that the Google Drive folder originally contained folders for 279 OnlyFans creators, with one of the folders containing over 10 GB of videos and photos.
DeVera said it appears that all content in the folder was uploaded in October 2020.
OnlyFans has some weak content controls around their content, and there are plenty of bots and scrapers that a legitimate subscriber can use. What makes this unique is that so many users are bundled into one folder, ” DeVera told BleepingComputer.
His team also believes it has been put together by more than one person.
This implies that probably multiple contributors added to the cache, or that the uploader extracted the content from multiple leaks. We do not believe that the poster on RaidForums is the original uploader of the Google Drive content, ”DeVera added.
The map also appears to have been shared from the City College of San Francisco account.
BackChannel representatives are currently trying to contact them to delete the entire folder.
OnlyFans is a content subscription service based in London. Site creators can monetize users who subscribe to their content.

It is unclear whether other information, such as credit cards or bank accounts, was stolen during the incident.
OnlyFans did not confirm the hack, and a request from DailyMail.com for comment to the company was not immediately answered on Wednesday afternoon.
BackChannel has created an online tool that OnlyFans creators can use to check if their accounts have been affected.
If creator content is found in the leak, BackChannel recommends that users visit https://labac.dev/content, which can be used to delete the content.
The incident comes months after Thorne caused outrage among sex workers when she joined OnlyFans and then brought in $ 1 million on her first day.
The former Disney star created an OnlyFans profile in August 2020.
But she pissed off several people who beat her for charging $ 200 for a “ naked ” photo where she wasn’t actually naked.
Thorne apologized at the time, but sex workers blamed her on the subscription platform that set new payment limits and blocks.
Content creators said Only Fans subsequently imposed payment limits of $ 50 on pay-per-view posts from a previous $ 200 limit, and a $ 100 limit on tips.
