Anonymous Vs Donald Trump: ‘This Is A Declaration Of Total War’
The infamous hacker group Anonymous has launched a cyber attack against the Republican presidential aspirant Donald Trump for the second time since its first attack late last year.Advertisement
In a video posted on YouTube, the group in its latest cyber war against Trump has called on other hackers all over the world to rally behind against the Republican frontrunner, who’s likely to get the party’s nomination for this year’s presidential election.
With the hashtag OPTrump, the group called its recent campaign as a call to arms against Trump and its effort to protect the future. In the 3:22 minute video, the masked figure said Trump poses a threat to the future, freedom, and everyone’s way of life.
“We are encouraging every able person with a computer watching this video to participate in this operation. You do not need to know how to hack to support this important operation. This is not a warning. This is a declaration of total war,” the masked figure said in the video.
It can be recalled that late last year, the group launched a massive cyber campaign against Trump after he issued some racist policies should he become the next president of the United States. The group specifically reacted when Trump said he would ban the entry of all Muslims in the US. The same statement draws the ire of the international community, not only the hacker group.
Immediately after the first statement from the Anonymous, a related group successfully defaced websites that are related to Trump or owned by the billionaire New Yorker, the Newsweek reports.
In an interview with the Newsweek, the group responsible for defacing Trumps’ website called Trump a “little bitch” adding that the group won’t stop its massive cyber attacks against the aspiring president of the most powerful country in the world unless he backs out from running.
Trump, who’s vying the Republicans’ nomination, has issued controversial policies when elected president of the US, especially in a bid to curb the country’s problem with terrorism and illegal immigrants.
