The hacktivist group has taken responsibility for the attacks through a Twitter handle known by the name AnonyInfo. The series of cyber attacks were made as a response to Charlottesville’s Unite the Right rally and the recent White Lives Matter rally, according to a hacker associated with the group who spoke with the publication.
The hacker said that their operation saw global cooperation because it was related to the US. He added that they might consider expanding the operation “to work with Anonymous groups in their own countries” as the “fight against fascism is global.”
