New, 4 comments

The hackers want to shut down the Trump Tower's website

After attacking the websites and online resources of countries like Turkey, North Korea and non-state actors such as ISIS, the infamous hacktivist group Anonymous has announced that it will now target real estate mogul and GOP front-runner Donald Trump. In their latest video, Anonymous has announced that it will attempt to disrupt Donald Trump's campaign and his personal brand — including shutting down the website for the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago on April 1. "We need you to shut down his websites," a person wearing a Guy Fawkes mask says in the video. "We need you to dismantle his campaign and sabotage his brand. We are encouraging everyone with a computer watching this video to participate in this operation." The news comes as Illinois residents head to the polls for the primary election.
