Anonymous-linked hackers just brought down the KKK’s main website

Hacktivist collectives Anonymous and Ghost Squad launched a successful denial-of-service (DDoS) attack against the official Ku Klux Klan website last week.

Hacktivist collectives Anonymous and Ghost Squad launched a successful denial-of-service (DDoS) attack against the official Ku Klux Klan website last week.

The attack is the latest action by the network of online activists in an ongoing campaign called #OpKKK which was launched several months ago.

“We targeted the KKK due to our hackers being up in their face. We believe in free speech but their form of beliefs is monolithic and evil,” one hacker said in a recent interview. “We stand for constitutional rights but they want anyone who is not Caucasian removed from earth so we targeted the KKK official website to show love for our boots on the ground and to send a message that all forms of corruption will be fought. We are not fascist but we certainly do not agree with the KKK movement.

“They are the Fascists and they are the Racists.”

According to Epoch Times, the KKK-controlled sites have gone in and out of service, member identities have been posted online, and recruiting efforts have come under fire as organizations like Anonymous and BinarySec continue to wage their digital battle against the white supremacist group.

RawStory reports that groups like Anonymous, Ghost Squad and BinarySec have launched distributed denial-of-service attacks against the KKK and revealed some of its members online in the past year.

Last year, hacktivists conducted DDoS attacks on KKK’s website when one of the Klan members allegedly harassed a woman on Twitter. And in 2014, the official website of a Mississippi-based white supremacist organization “The Nationalist Movement” (nationalist.org) was also defaced with messages like “Good night white pride,” according to Hackread.

    I was looking to start a blog, even though I don’t know which may be the best way to go about this. Several of my friends recommend buying a site from iPage, and then using WordPress. However , I feel this is restricting. My next option is certainly through TypePad as it appears to have the level of control desired, though this really is relatively expensive… So my question is really as follows: Which one is a much better idea? Which one would you personally use?.. Thanks a lot..

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

    I’m an author and I would love to have people’s views on my work. Does anyone understand any good blogging sites?. Tweets is not really a blogging site and the just way people see your focus on twitter as if they stick to you. Twitter and Facebook are not answers that I have always been looking for. Thank you for your input..
