Law enforcement continues to seek arrests over Trump cyber threat

The world’s most prominent hacker group aptly called Anonymous claimed Thursday that it hacked Donald Trump‘s personal information.

“Donald Trump has set his ambitions on the White House in order to promote an agenda of fascism and xenophobia as well as the religious persecution of Muslims through totalitarian policies,” said a masked speaker in a YouTube video announcing the hack.

The group released what it said was the Republican presidential front-runner’s social security number, cell phone number, birthdate, children’s names and company addresses.”

In the video, the group referred to a Trump presidency as a “Fourth Reich,” an allusion to Hitler’s Third Reich.

But NBC News reported that the majority of the information released by the hacktivist group had been publicly available for years, including Trump’s cell phone number which was released by Gawker after Trump gave out the phone number of Lindsey Graham.

Still, the Trump campaign was irate about the attack.

“The government and law enforcement authorities are seeking the arrest of the people responsible for attempting to illegally hack Mr. Trump’s accounts and telephone information,” the Trump campaign said in a statement.
