Hacktivist Group Anonymous Publishes Names of Alleged Ku Klux Klan Members


“Hacktivist” group Anonymous, which last week vowed to expose Ku Klux Klan members, has begun publishing personal details of alleged KKK adherents, according to news reports.

Anonymous said it would reveal the identity of 1,000 members of the KKK after gaining the information through a compromised Twitter account associated with the group, the International Business Times (IBT) website said Monday.

On Sunday and Monday morning, IBT reported, Anonymous posted four listings on text-sharing website Pastebin, including 57 phone numbers and 23 email addresses.

Meanwhile, according to Canadian news website Global News, Anonymous also is promising to unleash a social media campaign against the KKK on Nov. 4, using the hashtag #HoodsOff.

According to IBT, Anonymous has said it will reveal the identities of up to 1,000 members of the KKK by Thursday to coincide with the group’s Million Mask March. As detailed in a press release from the group. the event is timed to the first anniversary of the grand jury decision not to prosecute Darren Wilson, the white police officer who shot unarmed black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., in August 2014. IBT said it had attempted to call several of the numbers on the list, but none have been contacted so far.

“This is just the beginning,” read a press release issued by Anonymous Sunday.
