Anonymous Hacker Group Shuts Down Trump Tower Site
Anonymous has conducted several digital wars against the Ku Klux Klan, the Islamic State (ISIS), and the government, to name a few. However, the group now started to focus on leading presidential candidate of GOP, namely Donald Trump, after he commented that Muslims should not be allowed to enter the United States.
Anonymous unveil that the attack is initiated to condemn "hatred and racism". To explain the motive behind the #OpTrump campaign, a video on YouTube is also released by the group.
In the video speech, a masked individual says, "Donald Trump, it has come to our attention that you want to ban all Muslims from entering the United States".
As per masked member of Anonymous in reference to previous comments of Trump, there will be enormous impact of this policy. ISIS wants this because the more depressed the Muslims become, the more easily the Muslims will be recruited by the ISIS.
Echoing the comments made by President Obama during the weekend, the person in the video said that statements of Mr. Trump increase the risk factor of further helping the Islamic State terror group also known as ISIS, which encouraged the Muslims to take up arms against Americans.
As per the masked individual, "the more Muslims, not only the radical Muslims, looks like to be targeted by the United States; the ISIS definitely will place this on their social media campaign.
Donald Trump, you have been warned, and so, think twice before saying anything".
Earlier in the week, Anonymous affiliated accounts of Twitter said that the group had managed to shut down the website of New York's Trump Tower owned by Mr. Trump, which is a 68-storey skyscraper.
The attack on the site of Trump Tower seemed to be a predecessor of Friday's "Trolling Day", a day that Anonymous dedicated to the public at large and its international members to make fun of ISIS online. People are encouraged to publish memes, messages and mocking videos on social media.
However, supporters of ISIS, revert back by making public personal information of around 700 members of U.S. military, including names, home addresses, and emails of armed personnel. As per Christian Science Monitor, no confirmation have been received from the officials that the leaked information was acquired by hacking of military computers, but the information seems to be authentic as per the independent security researchers.
