Anonymous Hunts Neo-Nazis With WikiLeaks-Style Site

Members of hacktivist group Anonymous have ramped up their offensive against German neo-Nazis.

The hacktivists of Operation Blitzkrieg have launched a WikiLeaks-style website that aims to expose members of the far-right National Democratic Party (NPD) and other extremist groups, according to German news-site Der Spiegel. (German site) already features a list of alleged donors to the NPD. It also hosts what 'OpBlitzkrieg' claims are internal emails, a list of contact details allegedly belonging to far-right newspaper subscribers, and customer data supposedly hacked from neo-Nazi online stores.

Certain areas of the data, such as the internal emails, have been previously disclosed, but much of the other information is brand new.

The launch of the site this week represents the latest phase of OpBlitzkrieg, which launched early last year with a string of DDoS attacks.

A representative of the NPD told German newswire DPA that it is considering legal action against The publishers of right-wing weekly newspaper Junge Freiheit (Young Freedom) have already launched a legal suit against the site's "anonymous operators".
