Andrew Alan Escher Auernheimer, also known by his online pseudonym Weev, is an American hacker associated with the Alt-Right who is the current webmaster of The Daily Stormer. He is best known for being indicted for exposing a flaw in computer security that allowed hackers to steal data, for which he served 13 months in prison before his conviction was overturned on the grounds that the trial was not conducted properly. He is currently in contact with controversial Right-Wing pundit Milo Yiannopoulos, and has previously urged for people to kill black or Jewish children, as well as praising Anders Behring Breivik. He was barred from appearing on Breitbart Newsas the organisation did not want to associate with someone who is legally considered a racist. He also claimed responsibility for an incident in which thousands of printers across the US were hacked and made to print flyers adorned with Swastikas.

Despite his neo-Nazi and antisemitic views, Auernheimer is of Jewish descent.
