Hacktivists Target Multiple Sites Advocating Animal Abuse
In recent weeks, anonymous Paw Security activists have targeted animal abuse worldwide. Beginning on August 5, Chinese government websites, and those of Chinese companies, were attacked to protest the dog meat and fur trades.
In July, the websites of fur stores, roadside zoos, hunting ranches and exotic meat companies were targeted. Weeks later, some of the websites are still down.
In addition, several websites were hacked to reveal customer details (e-mail addresses and passwords). The activists also claim to have accessed the PayPal accounts of Ted Nugent, “celebrity” hunter Melissa Bachman and others.
