The hacker collective Anonymous is doxing (releasing persona information about) Missouri KKK leader Frank Ancona, and in a big way. They aren’t just giving the usual basics — email address, workplace, phone numbers, and other contact info. They’ve released a lot of personal information — and claim to have done much more.
Anonymous hacked a KKK Twitter account almost two weeks ago, and still maintains control. They continue to post photos and comments mocking the white supremacist group.

However, on Wednesday, they went a step farther. The hacker collective released, through the KKK Twitter account, links to Pastebin, a file sharing service.
Naturally, we’re not going to link to that doc, for ethical reasons, but here’s a glimpse of what it looks like, with personal details redacted. (His name and city are left intact because he’s stated those to reporters himself, and is open about being a Grand Imperial Wizard.)
As you can see, they share several email addresses purported to belong to Ancona — a total of nine in the full doc. There are links to several photos and youtube videos of the Missouri KKK leader, and his social media accounts, as well as those of people who are or may be related to him.
That’s not all, though. Anonymous claims to have used the information in a variety of additional attacks: hacking Ancona’s social media and Paypal accounts, and disconnecting his electric and phone service.
The hacker collective has also shared much more sensitive information, including what they say is Ancona’s tax id number, and two credit card numbers, along with PINs.
That’s still just a start — they’ve also shared information about his wife, and other possible contacts. It’s clear that the information is starting to lead to further attacks on the family, too.
For instance, the Facebook page of his wife’s purported employer currently bears several posts and comments similar to the following:
If yesterday was Teacup Tuesday is today White Supremacist Wednesday? Just curious since [name redacted] Ancona is a member of the KKK. Her husband Frank Ancona is a “Grand Wizard.”
However, the information may very well be out of date or inaccurate — after all, the page linked for Ancona’s wife’s place of work hasn’t been updated in two years, and the name of it is a misspelled word. The linked Twitter account has no posts newer than 2009. Other social media pages appear to be more current, though — the Facebook page linked for Ancona bears a profile photo with a message in support of Darren Wilson.
Despite any potential problems with the information, it’s a massive attack on Ancona, and Anonymous is demanding that he admit defeat. In fact, in an edit to the doc, in which they apparently added financial information, the collective stated:
*Update* We’ve decided to add your credit/debit card/ bank info. You refuse to stay limp and admit you’ve lost this war. Keep it up. and we’ll keep updating.
Anonymous has been focused on the KKK since the white supremacist group released a flier threatening harm to protesters in Ferguson.
The Missouri KKK leader has not responded to the attacks.
