“Anonymous”, the hacktivist group known throughout the world, has started off the new year with a new target – neo-Nazis – by disabling a large number of their websites and also publicizing lists of neo-Nazi supporters.

The “Anonymous” group has launched a web portal for their “Operation Blitzkrieg” movement which is being used to list hundreds of names, businesses, and writers who have shown support for the neo-Nazi movement.  One of the hacked websites was the German site Altermedia and a Twitter message was sent out from Altermedia’s account with a message wishing “all Nazis and in particular Altermedia a good start to the New Year.”

Previous campaigns by “Anonymous” have been highly scrutinized, but with “Operation Blitzkrieg”, they may get a little more support.  It may be too early to tell if there will be any negative effects from the new attack, but anyone with their name on the operation’s website may want to watch their back.
