A recent CBC report revealed that hacktivist group Anonymous has taken strike at a neo-Nazi group by hacking their system and leaking the information of many white supremacists onto the internet in an attempt to expose their hate movements. Dozens of these alleged neo-Nazis are from Canada. According to the report, European members of the loose knit group Anonymous were able to get into the blogs, secret websites, and emails of the white supremacist groups Volksfront and Blood and Honour. The hacktivist group was also able to find photographs of a meeting in Missouri, confidential legal documents, and pictures of Hitler tattoos. Anonymous initially posted information from their findings on a website called nazi-leaks.net, but it has been taken off. “We can now begin to piece together a more accurate picture in terms of the distribution of these types of racist groups across Canada,” Helmut-Harry Loewen, a University of Winnipeg sociology professor and a member of the Canadian Anti-racism Education and Research Society told CBC News.

siehe auch: Hackers share personal information of Albertans with Nazi group links. ‘Anonymous’ collective posts addresses, phone numbers online. Albertans whose names have been connected to neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups are angry that their personal identification has been published on the Internet. Earlier this week, an informal computer hacking collective that operates under the name “Anonymous” released the addresses and phone numbers of thousands of people who had registered with websites affiliated with white supremacist causes. The sites included Blood and Honour and Local 1488, which sells mementoes, T-shirts and militaristic training manuals. Of the more than 70 Canadian residents revealed, more than a dozen were listed in Edmonton and Calgary.
