As reported earlier Anonymous hacktivists are all ready to leak personal information of members belonging to the white supremacist Christian organization the Ku Klux Klan (KKK).

Now, Anonymous has started revealing the personal details (email and phone numbers) of KKK members. Though for now, the credentials of only some of the members are leaked but the group has promised to reveal all 1000 soon.

The group exposed the credentials on Pastebin and updated the public via twitter. According to the anonymous the reason behind their actions is:

“We are not attacking you (the KKK) because of what you believe in as we fight for freedom of speech, we are attacking you because of what you do to our brothers and sisters”.

Last week Anonymous announced that they will be exposing 1000 members of KKK:

According to the group, details of the members they got hold of after hacking into one of the KKK’s member’s account.

Here are some of the tweets from Your Anon News with links containing personal information of KKK members:

One of the Pastebin leak alleges four U.S senators of having connections with the KKK.

Anonymous and KKK has been in the cyber war for quite some time now where the hacktivists have always been in the commanding position, at one point they nearly dismantled the KKK group on the Internet by exposing many of the group’s members.

At that time, the war seemed to have stopped but a recent incident of an anonymous member’s girlfriend being harassed by a KKK member restarted the war.

From there on Anonymous has shut down many of the KKK’s sites and also has promised to expose 1000 KKK’s members.

Stay tuned for more!
