A group of Anonymous-affiliated hacktivists, KnightSec, have defaced RollRedRoll.com – the Steubenville High School website dedicated to the school’s football, basketball and baseball programs.
The hack is a form of protest against the fact that authorities and parents are said to be protecting a group of boys from the school’s football team accused of abusing a 15-year-old girl from Ohio.
On the defaced website, the hacktivists published a video statement claiming to possess the names, social security numbers, addresses and other personal details of all those involved in the incident.
They already leaked some details, but they claim to poses much more information.
“This is a warning shot to the school faculty, the parents of those involved, and those involved especially,” the hackers said.
“A preliminary dox is being released on some of those involved, while a full size dox of everyone involved including names, social security numbers, addresses, relatives, and phone numbers is being compiled as you watch this video on every single member of the football team, those involved, the coaches, the principle, and more,” they added.
They claim that they’ll publish all the information they have if the “accused parties” don’t apologize to the victim and her family by January 1, 2013.
“Make no mistake, all you need is a Google search engine to realize we are serious in what we do. You can hide no longer, you have attracted the attention of the hive,” they threatened.
The New York Times published a detailed article
on the incident on December 16. Shortly after the hack, Steubenville High School representatives told
the publication that the institution did not control the rollredroll.com website, highlighting the fact that it did not have any connection with it.
