According to reports, Hackers shut down GiveSendGo’s fundraising website temporarily following the Canadian Freedom Convoy raising millions of dollars through the site.
The site’s front page reportedly redirected to a mocking videoThe movie Frozen 2 that accused the convoy of promoting “insurrection,” called GiveSendGo “a continuing threat to democracy” and supported the authoritarian Canadian government.
The Freedom Convoy of truckers and their supporters have been staging peaceful protests in Canada against draconian COVID-19 mandates imposed by the government. Hackers temporarily blocked the convoy’s fundraising page on GiveSendGo Monday, a page that had raised $8.6 million, according to the Daily Mail.com.
According to reports, hackers redirect the page’s fundraising link. a videoWith a Frozen movie clip, claiming that the convoy was causing “insurrection” and was involved with “known extremists.” The hackers claim “to have stolen the list of donors who supported the Freedom Convoy demonstrations,” the Daily Mail reported. GiveSendGo is still down at the time of publication.
The strange message from the purported video slammed cryptocurrency and alleged that the convoy, or a similar convoy, could be a “Trojan Horse attack” for “extremists” to arrive “with weapons.” U.S. and European truckers reportedly announced plans to start their own convoys to protest COVID-19 restrictions that are costing jobs, and in some places, hurting already strained supply chains. The purported hacker video also claimed the democratic Freedom Convoy movement was a “threat to democracy.”
Dean Blundell, a Canadian journalist and editor, tweeted a piece that included some of the GiveSendGo contributors to the Freedom Convoy. Blundell’s piece said of the convoy’s situation with law enforcement, “I think you might see some guy’s heads get freedom from their shoulders.” Blundell’s tweet has not been censored by Twitter as of the publishing of this piece, despite potential violation of Twitter’s personal information policy.
The hacker purportedly video also stated that “The data from this breach data will be provided in its entirety to researchers and journalists so that the impact of foreign political interference can be better understood and sensible, informed policy decisions can be made to defend against this growing threat.” The data include names, emails and ZIP codes for donors, according to the Daily Mail article. According to reports, the hack occurred as Canadian authorities arrested dozens Freedom Convoy protestors. The protestors could face jail time or $100,000 fines.
