TOWLEROAD - Feb 4 - Hunters, a gay hook-up app popular in Russia, came under an attack by hackers. All users received an anonymous threat which read: "You will be arrested and jailed for gay propaganda in Sochi according to Russian Federal Law". Hunters is blocked in Sochi and Adler now, and ~72K user profiles were deleted throughout Russia. Maybe the Russian Government implemented Turkish practices where Grindr has been banned for almost half a year.
