Hackers just released the home address and phone number of price-gouging pharma CEO Martin Shkreli

If you’re dying to give some life advice to Martin Shkreli, the CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals who jacked up the price of the drug Daraprim from $13 a pill to $750, your friendly neighborhood hacker has some info to share with you.

Caving to the resulting uproar, Shkreli has since announced that he’ll be lowering the price. According to The New York Times, the new price will be $1,050 for 30 pills, which is around double the original cost, but it’s obviously a huge improvement from the $750 per pill price tag Shkreli originally tried to push

Either way, the Internet’s wrath is still going strong, and now hackers have joined in the fray.

Using an anonymous Twitter account, someone posted what is alleged to be Shkreli’s address and phone number, tweeting it to other big name accounts like the AIDS organization ACT UP and Occupy Wall Street. Not surprisingly, the info is getting passed around quite a bit.

The folks over at Death And Taxes called the number and recorded what definitely sounds to be Shkreli’s voicemail (Audio below). The number is still in use the last time we checked.

[Update: 9/23/15]: The Twitter account that shared Shkreli’s personal information has since been suspended.
