WTO HACK (2015)
Involved in hijacking two major Israeli arms dealers and leaking their client data in the past, a hacker stated that he was with Anonymous after admitting that he was the one behind the WTO hack in May 2015. The hacker leaked personal information of many WTO officials by hacking into WTO through their ecampus.wto.org domain. Details like phone numbers, email addresses, IP addresses, etc. of over 2,100 WTO officials from USA, India, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Brazil, and other nations was made public by this hacker belonging to Anonymous.
DONALD TRUMP’S WEBSITE HACK (2015)
Donald Trump was in public view when he made a statement that he wanted all Muslims to be banned from entering the United States of America. Ironically for Mr. Trump, he also caught the attention of Anonymous, who decided to teach him a lesson instantly. For more than an hour, they subsequently took down the website of Trump Towers. The news of the hack was broken with a twitter account related to Anonymous. It was followed by posting of a YouTube video shortly that had a group member asking Donald Trump to think twice before he speaks.
ISIS WEBSITE ATTACK (2015)
Ghost Sec, a group related with Anonymous, took down a website that copied and shared ISIS propaganda, it along with an ad placed the message to Calm Down. The ad was related to an online pharmacy that sold drugs like Viagra and Prozac, with the message saying that there was too much ISIS. The full message was ‘Enhance your calm. Too many people are into this ISIS-stuff. Please gaze upon this lovely ad so we can upgrade our infrastructure to give you ISIS content you all do desperately crave.” In order to avoid the authorities many ISIS-supporting websites have been moving to the dark web, however, they have been unable to keep out Anonymous, for they have no jurisdiction.
Ever since the Project Chronology attack of 2008, Anonymous have been gaining international reputation. As Anonymous’ activities are always in public interest, they have been much-admired by the common people. The popularity is also well supported by their Guy Fawkes masks.
