Did Donald Trump’s personal information just hit the Internet? A hacktivist group named Anonymous claims to have leaked the GOP candidate’s Social Security and cell phone numbers, along with tons of other private info. Get the scary details here!
The war between Donald Trump, 69, and hacktivist group Anonymous has officially begun — with Trump’s confidential info! Just two weeks after Anonymous declared they were going to “dismantle” the Republican frontrunner’s campaign completely, they revealed information allegedly belonging to Donald including phone numbers and a Social Security number. Yikes!
On the afternoon of March 17, Anonymous spread a list of data they claimed to be Donald’s, containing a Social Security number, personal cell phone number, numbers supposedly belonging to his agent and legal team, and even his parents’ names! While there’s no proof that the leaked information is Donald’s, it’s still pretty scary to think that they managed to get a hold of someone’s private data — and released it to the world!
In fact, HollywoodLife.com gave Donald’s “cell phone number” a call, and it went straight to an automated voicemail box that had no name attached to it. We also received no answer upon texting the number. That likely means either Donald has already changed his number, or Anonymous didn’t actually give out his info!
Anonymous has a reputation for taking down hateful groups, and they’ve put their focus on Donald in the midst of the 2016 presidential election due to the horrific things he has said and done during his campaign. They posted a video declaring total war on Trump on March 4, but their data dump is the first form of action they’ve taken in the attack. The hacktivist group shared another video outlining #OpWhiteRose, their latest anti-Trump operation that refers to the resistance against the Nazi Third Reich, in addition to the leaked personal info. In the video, Anonymous urges everyone to join in the battle against “fascism” (Trump is a fascist, in their opinion).
“Now is the time to unite to fight fascism. To show that we are very serious about stopping any proposed forthright by the fascist Donald Trump we have attached a gift of sorts. Trump’s Social Security number, cell phone number and other details that might be able to assist you.”
Even if the information they leaked isn’t Donald’s, he should still take their threat seriously. Anonymous has plotted successful cyber attacks on the KKK — whose former leader expressed support for Trump — and the Westboro Baptist Church. Plus, they concluded their video with, “Donald Trump, you should have expected us.” We’d be pretty nervous if we were Donald!
HollywoodLifers, do you think the information Anonymous released is actually Donald’s? Should he be concerned about their threats? Tell us below!
