Anonymous Just Made claims they hacked Donald Trump, releasing 'his Social Security and cell phone numbers'

Anonymous Just Made claims they hacked Donald Trump

Earlier this week the hacker group Anonymous declared “total war” on GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, calling his behavior “deeply disturbing.”
On Thursday, Anonymous started to follow through on that promise, reportedly posting personal information about Trump online. Most of it was already public, like his birthday, his place of birth, and his legal counsel, but there were a few tidbits that had been private, namely his (alleged) social security number and the number to his cell phone, according to USA Today.
In saying it would target Trump, Anonymous cited the White House hopeful’s characterization of Mexicans as “rapists,” his mocking of a disabled reporter, and his insults against women as its motivation for cyberattacks. The group’s hackers often use distributed denial of service attacks—overwhelming floods of Internet traffic—to pummel computer servers.
'The government and law enforcement authorities are seeking the arrest of the people responsible for attempting to illegally hack Mr. Trump's accounts and telephone information,' the statement said.

A government official confirmed that federal authorities are investigating the situation, according to ABC News.

Along with a Social Security number allegedly belonging to Trump, Anonymous released what it claimed to be Trump's cell phone number, his birth date, children's names and company address.

They also released outdated information including legal representation.
After the documents were posted, Anonymous announced the hack on Twitter.


Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American businessman, politician, television personality, and candidate for theRepublican nomination for President of the United States in the 2016 election. He is the chairman and president of The Trump Organization and the founder of the gaming and hotel enterprise Trump Entertainment Resorts (now owned by Carl Icahn).
Trump, who is from Queens in New York City, is a son of real estate developer Fred Trump. While attending college, he worked for his father's firm, Elizabeth Trump & Son. Upon graduating from college in 1968 he joined the company, and in 1971 was given control, renaming the company "The Trump Organization". Since then he has built casinos, golf courses, hotels, and other properties, many of which bear his name. Trump and his businesses have received prominent media exposure, and he hosted a popular NBC reality show, The Apprentice, from 2005 to 2015. His three marriages have been highly publicized.
Trump first campaigned for the U.S. presidency in 2000, winning two Reform Party primaries. On June 16, 2015, Trump again announced his candidacy for president, this time as a Republican. He became known for his opposition to immigration, free trade, and military interventionism[4] and eventually emerged as the front-runner for the Republican nomination. As of March 16, 2016, he has won 20 contests in the 2016 Republican presidential primaries.
