As our nation once again finds itself divided down heavy and heart wrenching political lines, the battle over abortion is heating up.
The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade has riled a great many within the radical left, with angst-ridden protests popping up all over the nation in the last week. Furthermore, some activists have taken to vandalizing and attacking anti-abortion centers and businesses.
The latest front in this political melee is now the online space.
A gaggle of hackers has decided to take the US Supreme Court’s sudden and devastating reversal of landmark decision Roe vs. Wade into their own hands.
The group, called SeigedSec, is not exactly white hat. As Tech Monitor reports, they mostly work to cull user data from private companies. While a recent Telegram announcement made clear that they have no intention of halting black hat activities, the Supreme Court decision has led them to declare that it’s “time for some hacktivism” — in the form of stealing information from government bodies and other pro-life organizations.Trending:
“Like many, we are also pro-choice, one shouldn’t be denied access to abortion,” the syndicate wrote. “As added pressure to the [US] government, we have leaked many internal documents and files retrieved from Kentucky’s and Arkansas’ government server.”
The group was already putting in some work:
The group claims to have already stolen about 8 gigabytes of data, which they say includes government workers’ personal information. And according to the hackers, Kentucky and Arkansas are just the beginning.
“THE ATTACKS WILL CONTINUE!” The hackers promised in their Telegram post. “Our main targets are any pro-life entities, including government servers of the states with anti-abortion laws.”
The statement would go on to utter a profoundly sophomoric sentiment of “F*** the government”, belying the immature nature of the activist group.
