As part of OpRedRoll and Occupy Steubenville, Anonymous' response to the rape of a 15-year-old girl in Steubenville, Ohio last August, hacker AnonAcid recently published the names, birthdates, addresses and other personal data of residents of Steubenville and nearby towns in Ohio.
"The campaign [was] launched after news broke out that authorities might be protecting members of the Steubenville football team accused of abusing a 15-year-old girl," writes E Hacking News' Sabari Selvan.
"The origin of the data is unknown for the time being, but the hacker threatens to target the systems of the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce and the [Web site] of the City of Steubenville," writes Softpedia's Eduard Kovacs. "'City Of Steubenville, your justice system is broke and needs to be fixed maybe this might help a little,' the hacker wrote next to the data leak. The hacker has also published a list of individuals suspected of being involved in the abuse and demands that they be sent to jail."
