The online hacktivist AnonGhost is back in action. This time by defacing the official website of an Army and Navy Academy, a Carlsbad, California based private military boarding school. 

The attack was conducted under the banner of #OpChapelHill that explains the reason for targeting website of this boarding school was to protest against the killings of three American Muslims on February 10, 2015.  

The Army and Navy Academy is a member of the Association of Military Schools and Colleges of the United States (AMCSUS).

AnonGhost has left a deface page along with a message on the targeted site against hate crimes and racism in the United States. 

“This Message Is Addressed To US Government: After killing of 3 Muslims in US, your media stayed silent. then you call Muslims terrorists ! you are the real terrorists ! as you continue to push for full domination and control of our lifes. We will fight back!”, according to the message.
