Anonymous Hackers Reportedly Declare War on Trump Over Muslim Ban Proposal
Members of Anonymous have issued a stern warning to Donald Trump, with some members of the hacktivist collective saying they have declared war against the mogul for his controversial call to ban foreign Muslims.
While Anonymous has been preoccupied recently with their attempt to wage cyber-war with ISIS, various Twitter accounts linked to the group have launched Operation Trump, and have admonished the Republican candidate’s inflammatory rhetoric by saying he is only supporting ISIS’ case against America. One hacker uploaded a picture to Twitter, and alleged that a distributed denial of service attack was underway to crash www.trumptowerny.com:

As of today, the site is still in operation, and Anonymous has yet to issue any official support for the members who have gotten behind #OpTrump. Nonetheless, a warning video was posted online, with a spokesman saying that “the more Muslims feel sad, the more ISIS feel that they can recruit them. The more United States appears to be targeting Muslims not just radical Muslims.”
