Anonymous Hackers Hit Child Porn Web Sites

Members of Anonymous claim to have taken down more than 50 child pornography Web sites and leaked the names of more than 1,500 members of one of the sites.

“The Anonymous campaign began Oct. 14, when members of the hacktivist group found a cache of child-pornography websites while browsing a secret website called the Hidden Wiki, a guidebook to hundreds of underground websites invisible to search engines and regular Internet users,” writes SecurityNewsDaily’s Matt Liebowitz.

“The hackers singled out Lolita City, a file-sharing site used by pedophiles, and leaked the names of the site’s 1,589 active members to Pastebin on Tuesday (Oct. 18), the Examiner reported,” Liebowitz writes.
