Anonymous Takes on Trump

Throughout the course of his campaign Donald Trump has made a habit out of making enemies. So far, Trump has managed to stay ahead of his fellow candidates, despite taking flack from the media, multiple world-leaders, and even the Pope himself. While Trump has managed to thrive under the barrage of attacks from all sides, it will be interesting to see how he fares against his newest adversaries: the hacktivist group known as “Anonymous”. Earlier this week, Anonymous released a video announcing a new operation called “OpTrump”. While Anonymous is not so much an organized group as it is a loose collective of like minded individuals, groups of Anons have combined their efforts to pull-off some impressive feats. According to this video released by Anonymous, the group pulling off OpTrump is the same elite-hacker group that was involved in taking down Turkey’s internet last year. Unlike his previous adversaries, which relied on attacking Trump publicly,  Anonymous’ plan of attack is not likely to generate the media attention that has fueled the Trump Campaign. Even though the operation is officially set to begin on April 1st, Anonymous members have already managed to acquire and release Trumps phone number and social security will be interesting to see how (or if) OpTrump plays out. Regardless, we will be sure to cover this story as it unfolds.
