After declaring total war on Donald Trump, again, the hacking collective known as Anonymous, have promised to dismantle the Republican Presidential hopeful’s electoral campaign by exposing details that the perma-bronzed billionaire would rather the “public didn’t know.”
As a result, Anonymous, have allegedly published The Donald’s Social Security number, personal phone number, and a host of other information into the ether of the internet.
The hacking collective have given their clandestine information gathering the name #OpWhiteRose on social media, and dumped the information for the world to peer at on pastebin.com.
As well as Trump’s phone number and social security id, the list also includes contact details for his agent, his lawyers, and also the names of his children.
Anyone expecting more will probably be disappointed, as apart from his US cell phone number and Social Security information, most of the details are already in the public domain, or can be simply googled. The point though, according to some sources, is that Anonymous are just getting started.
Curiously, Trump is the only US presidential candidate that has seemingly been targeted. At the time of writing, there has been no immediate or official response from anyone in Trump’s campaign team. It should also be noted that none of the information released by the hacking collective has either been denied or confirmed.
Despite this, news of the hack quickly exploded across the internet. It is unknown whether anyone actually got through to Trump to have a chat, or indeed hurl a few insults in his general direction.
Anonymous originally declared war on Trump and his campaign last year after he floated his idea for banning all Muslims from travelling to the United States if he were to be elected.
The declaration of war on Trump’s campaign stated that:
“Your inconsistent and hateful campaign has not only shocked the United States America, you have shocked the entire planet with your appalling actions and ideas….We have been watching you for a long time and what we’ve seen is deeply disturbing. You don’t stand for anything but your personal greed and power.”
At the end of the video posted online, the Guy Fawkes masked member of Anonymous says that people can do with the information as they will, but to “just be aware that you are responsible for your own actions.”
Wise words, maybe. But the real question is whether Anonymous or anyone else will be able to dent the enthusiasm and zeal many of his supporters have for the outspoken business man.
