A solo hacker is taking down racist and homophobic sites one by one

Lone warrior takes the fight to the racist and homophobic websites

Like a man on a mission, a hacker who goes by the name of Amped Attacks is targeting and taking down homophobic and racist websites one by one through distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. Unlike other hackers who take out websites and services for some gains, Amped Attacks prefers to target racist and homophobic websites.

A DDoS attack is a common method for taking down a server by overloading it with requests. Amped Attacks takes down a website and tweets announcing it to the world. He/she uses the hashtag  #tangodown in the tweets to announce the downing of website. This a hashtag commonly used by the online hacktivist group, Anonymous. However, other than #tangodown, there doesnt seem to any connection between the hacker and Anonymous. Also, no major Anonymous Twitter account has sanctioned or endorsed Amped Attacks exploits.

Amped Attacks earlier today took down a anti-gay website, godhatesfags.com, as you can see in the tweet below.


Amped Attacks has successfully targeted and temporarily killed multiple sites.


On the weekend, he took down kkkknights.com, though the site quickly returned. However, Amped Attacks has vowed to take it down again.
