Vigilante hacker group Anonymous declared "total war" on Donald Trump, ratcheting up its offensive against the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination.


"This is not a warning, this is a declaration of total war," a computerized voice said in a video posted earlier this month, speaking over a shot of someone wearing a hood and the collective's trademark Guy Fawkes mask.

The video called on anyone with a computer to join them on April 1 to help dismantle his campaign, whether by sharing the video, hacking his websites to shut them down, or exposing secrets to sabotage his brand.

"You say what your current audience wants to hear, but in reality you don't stand for anything except for your personal greed and power. This is a call to arms," the narrator said.
