Earlier in the week Anonymous declared a “total war” against Donald Trump. It appears that the hactivist group seems to be carrying through with their threats on the leading GOP candidate.
On Thursday, Anonymous began the first stage of their “war” against the Donald by releasing Trump’s Social Security number and cellphone number. The hackers also doxxed more easily obtained information such as the contact information for his lawyers and agent. The hacktivist group posted the personal information on Pastebin.com and Ghostbin.com.
The hacktivists group have dubbed their campaign on Trump as #OpWhiteRose, which refers to non-violent, intellectual resistance group in Nazi Germany, consisting of students from the University of Munich that tried to take on the Third Reich during the height of their power. They have a Facebook page titled White Rose Society.
Anonymous also released a new YouTube video attacking Trump.
“Donald Trump has set his ambitions on the White House in order to promote an agenda of fascism and xenophobia as well as the religious persecution of Muslims through totalitarian policies.
Now is the time to unite to fight fascism to show that we are very serious to stop any proposed Fourth Reich by the fascist Donald Trump. We have attached a gift of sorts … that might be able to insist you all in independently investigating this would-be dictator. These are provided for informational purposes only.”
Anonymous cautioned the dangers of misusing Trump’s Social Security number, even though they were the ones that unearthed it and publicized it.
“Do with them what you will, bearing in mind that you alone are responsible for your actions,” the individual in the group’s trademark Guy Fawkes mask.
Anonymous is also planning a barrage of cyberattacks that they are hoping to take down Trump’s websites on April 1. The group encouraged hackers to participate in targeting the real estate mogul’s websites such as donaldjtrump.com, trump.com and trumphotelcollection.com.
Trump is no stranger to doxxing. Trump announced the phone number of fellow GOP presidential candidate, Sen. Lindsey Graham during a rally in South Carolina that was televised live.
“I don’t know if it’s the right number,” Trump said before reading the phone number aloud. “Let’s try it.”
Anonymous has declared war against other in the past including the Klu Klux Klan and ISIS.
