Recently the United States based white supremacy group known as the Klu Klux Klan was the target of the international super group of vigilant hackers known as Anonymous. In early September, the KKK had threatened lethal harm and passed out intimidating pamphlets to protesters who were communing peacefully awaiting the court ruling on the murder of an unarmed black male named Michael Brown by a white police officer in Missouri.
In early October Anonymous pulled the trigger on Operation KKK or #OpKKK to infiltrate and gather personal information on Klan members residing in the St.Louis, Missouri area.
The KKK arrogantly responded by posting”Our Kommunity is not at all scared of the threats from Anonymous. Just try us. You’ll regret it.”#WhitePrideWorldWide
On Sunday Anonymous defied the threats of the KKK and captured the white supremacist groups Twitter account, removed the logo and replaced it with their own.
Anonymous then tweeted We have taken control of @KuKluxKlanUSA We told you we would attack back#OpKKK#Hoodsoff
The hacker group has Tweeted several times from the account to continue to validate their claims that they are in control of the KKK social media account, and promised further details on November 18.
Anonymous released a public statement on Youtube:
Greetings world, we are Anonymous
KKK it has came to our unfortunate attention that you have been interfering with Anonymous.
We are not attacking you because of what you believe in as we fight for freedom of speech…
We are attacking you because of what you did to our brothers and sisters at the Ferguson protest on the 12th of November.
Due to your actions we have started Operation KKK. The aim of our operation is nothing more than Cyber Warfare.
Anything you upload will be taken down, anything you use to promote the KKK will be shut down.
DDos attacks have already been sent and have infiltrated your servers over the past 2 days… d0x’s have also been launched on leaders of the KKK.
All information retrieved will be given to the public.
You messed with our family and now we will mess with yours…
Let the cyber war begin.
We are legion.
We do not forgive
We do not forget
Ku Klux Klan you should have expect us.
