Ghost Squad hacktivists have conducted a series of some powerful DDoS attacks on the official website of Black Lives Matter movement forcing it to go offline. Black Lives Matter (BLM) is an international activist movement, originating in the African-American community, that campaigns against violence toward black people. In 2013, the movement began with the use of the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter on social media, after the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of African-American teen Trayvon Martin.

The first phase of the attack was conducted yesterday and Ghost Squad DDoSed the blacklivesmatter.com and blacklifematters.org. The .org domain was later allegedly suspended by the hosting company. Here is the screenshot which shows the .com domain had its home page completely damaged while the .org domain was suspended due to the DDoS attacks.

The second phase of attack was conducted today and once again Ghost Squad took down the blacklivesmatter.com domain worldwide. They had shared a tweet on this :

The Black Lives Matter (BLM) website is not yet online and displays the follow message for all the visitors :

Capture

The Ghost Squad attackers in a talking with the Hack Read said that : “We targeted the Black Lives Matter Movement we have been watching several members of their movement hold racist signs, and attack innocent individuals over cultural appropriation while speaking English. I s1ege (the attack) started this operation after attacking the KKK I realized the individuals in the BLM movement were acting no better some even promote genocide of the Caucasian race. This will not be tolerated what angered me and the other members of GhostSquad was that the leaders also do not speak on this topic, this was not the dream of Martin Luther King Jr, and should not be supported or promoted by any movement. All Lives Matter!”

    Interesting choice of target…Do they not understand the reason that minorities are forming such organizations? Do they not see the dramatic contrast of how different races are treated already? What did this attack actually prove besides that there is an ever widening gulf between us? Can’t they see how their actions only serve to help silence the oppressed?

    They DDoS’d the WordPress site of a movement that barely uses its site in the first place. WOW. Sounds super l33t.

    That is embarrassing, and I wouldn’t even brag about it.

    I agree, if we are going to protest for equality then there should be no bias racist remarks or displays of violence towards another race.

    “Black Lives Matter (BLM) is an international activist movement, originating in the African-American community, that campaigns for violence towards white people, while not allowing violence toward black people in self-defense.” There, FIFY.

      Absolutely false charge against Black Lives Matter. They work with white people and oppose all forms of oppression and racism.
