Members of Anonymous have launced a Web site that lists the names and e-mail addresses of thousands of supporters of German far-right groups.

"In support of its 'Operation Blitzkrieg' campaign, Anonymous created 'Nazi-Leaks,' ... a WikiLeaks-style web site on which the hacktivist group has posted the names and addresses of NPD donors, a contacts list from the right-wing newspaper Junge Freiheit (Young Freedom) and names and email addresses taken from neo-Nazi online store databases," writes SecurityNewsDaily's Matt Liebowitz.

"Despite the nature of Anonymous' campaign, and its controversial targets, 'OpBlitzkrieg' has drawn criticism, predominantly from Germans who believe the hackers were out of line in violating the privacy of the extremists, regardless of their beliefs," Liebowitz writes.
