Anti-Nazi hacktivists vow to continue cyberwar

German hackers have pledged to continue their cyberwar against the far right – despite recent crackdowns against so-called ‘hacktivists’. In an exclusive interview, one spoke with Brian Whelan. Prolific hackers affiliated with the Anonymous group have been waging an unrelenting campaign against right wing websites dubbed ‘Operation Blitzkrieg’. They have breached servers belonging to the extreme right National Democratic Party (NPD) and the illegal Blood and Honour group, leaking personal details of thousands of members. And despite threats from the right, their campaign will continue, as they remain unfazed by a recent spate of arrests targeting hackers. “Operation Blitzkrieg is designed to be a long-term op,” their anonymous spokesperson explained. “As long as the Nazis are present in the interwebs we will fight against them. “The campaign in the internet is important. It’s also relevant that the people go on the street and demonstrate against them,” the spokesperson said. Using Twitter to keep their fans updated, the Operation Blitzkrieg hackers openly boast of their exploits and post leaked files from their ‘Nazi leaks’ on their website. (…) The hackers say they are now operating across several European countries as well as Brazil and are still building their hacking network, although German websites remain their primary targets. Operation Blitzkrieg leaks have revealed links between the Britain’s BNP and US extremists, who praised Nick Griffin as the ‘greatest white activist in the world’. Hackers also released copies of voicemails and emails between white nationalist groups and US Presidential candidate Ron Paul’s campaign staff. The group says there are more revelations to come. “Operation Blitzkrieg was founded in February 2011 and went public in May. We have access to many fascist email accounts we haven’t released yet,” the spokesman said. “For a while we will gather that data and when we have what we want, we will release it for the public. Expect us! “Fascist Parties are all over the world. The focus is everywhere. Guys from Sweden, Finland, Brazil and France also work within this operation.”
