Planned Parenthood Database Hacked
Names and email addresses of employees were stolen from a Planned Parenthood database by hackers who also tried to deface their site.
Daily Dot reported that the hacker group calls itself “3301,” and one of their participants, who goes by the letter “E,” made it clear that their motives were political in nature.
“Trying to mold an atrocious monstrosity into socially acceptable behaviors is repulsive,” said E. “Obviously what [Planned Parenthood] does is a very ominous practice. It’ll be interesting to see what surfaces when [Planned Parenthood] is stripped naked and exposed to the public.”
The attempt to mess with the Parenthood website failed, but the hackers reportedly said that they would be releasing the information they acquired “soon.” Daily Dot did not publish a link leading to their news source or the hacker’s website, but wrote that the hackers left this message:
“We’ve noticed quite a lot of attention has been diverted to a supposedly malicious organization known as Planned Parenthood. The actions of this ‘federation’ are not seen as right in the eyes of the public. So here we are, the social justice warriors, seeking to reclaim some sort of lulz for the years and thousands of dollars that Planned Parenthood have wasted and made harvesting your babies.”
