Anonymous target revenge porn site owner

Hunter Moore, the former owner of a ‘revenge porn site’ has been threatened by famous hacking group Anonymous.

Moore in the past was known for posting sexual images of women and men without their permission, linking to their social networking profiles. He helped people get ‘revenge’ on ex partners. Moore said he was going to launch another site soon, saying he would also post home addresses.

He later said he was ‘misquoted’ but Anonymous have already said he will be held ‘accountable for his actions’.

The group said in a release “We will protect anyone who is victimised by abuse of our internet, we will prevent the stalking, rape, and possible murders as by-product of his sites.” They added “Operation anti-bully. Operation hunt Hunter engaged. We are Anonymous, we are legion, we do not forgive, we do not forget, Hunter Moore, expect us.”

Moore sold his old website isanyoneup.com to an anti bullying charity in April this year. Sadly, ‘revenge porn’ is popular online but he went a stage further by publishing links to social networking sites, which left the victims of the imagery open for abuse to a wide audience.

When people asked Moore to remove the images he often ignored them, even under legal threat.

According to reports Moore made $20,000 a month from advertising revenue on the site.

When he spoke out about his new site he said “This time I am doing it right. I am creating something that will question if you ever want to have kids.

“I am making something very scary but yet fun.”

According to the BBC, Moore spoke to Betabeat and said that the new site would “introduce the mapping stuff so you can stalk people”. He later took back the statement, saying he was ‘drunk’ at the time.

Anonymous have since published details about Moore online, including the names of family members and his home address. They also published a video on Vimeo which showed pictures of Amanda Todd, the girl who committed suicide after topless photographs of her were circulated online. The 15 year old girl created a Youtube account before her death detailed how she was bullied.

Moore has no guilt over her death. He spoke to the BBC in an interview in April saying “It’s anonymous to me. I don’t know the people – it’s just a little picture on a screen. If you’re just crying over some [picture] you sent to some boy you just met, no I’m not going to take it down, and no I don’t really care.”

Kitguru says: We would imagine that Anonymous targeting Moore will be welcomed by many people
