Earlier today, December 13 2018, the website belonging to the English Defense League (EDL), a far-right English Nationalists group opposed to Islamic immigration and religious practices, was hacked and contents belonging to its databases were leaked online. The hack and subsequent leak has been claimed by “TriCk aka Saywhat?” of ZCOMPANY HACKING CREW and TeaMp0isoN, a once famous group of international hackers that is to have disbanded years ago. More than likely, the hack was conducted to make a stand against xenophobia and racism, targeting religious extremists active in the discrimination of Muslims.
According to a press release posted on the Pastebin web service this morning, hackers managed to leak the identities of EDL leadership, website and staff, including their real names, place of work, home addresses, phone numbers, social accounts, pictures, emails, IP Address, account names and passwords, as well as internal messages exchanged between group members.
