Anonymous stated that some anti-anonymous hackers started a phony web site that captured IP addresses from Anonymous supporters in #OpFerguson. The web site was a honeypot that acted as a fake DDoS portal with targets such as Ferguson, New York and Chicago Police, the FBI, the White House, the Marines, the Pentagon, the Air Force and the Army. Anonymous also extended the operation by leaking on Pastebin (the link was removed and is only accessible via Google Cache) more than 7,000 alleged law enforcement accounts from the Missouri Sheriffs’ Association.
Details such as names, usernames, plaintext passwords, Social Security Numbers, email addresses, physical addresses and phone numbers were published.
A petition was also started to “take Governor Jay Nixon out of office for the way he handled the situation in Ferguson, Missouri.”
