Isaac Brekken/Getty ImagesHacker collective Anonymous claimed to have leaked Donald Trump's private details on Thursday, but most of the dump was already publicly-available or made so last year.
"We have attached a gift of sorts," says a computer-generated voice in a new video claiming to be from Anonymous. "Trump's social security number, cell phone number, and other details that might be able to assist you all in independently investigating this would-be dictator. These are provided for informational purposes only."
The video message links out to information hosted at Pastebin, purporting to reveal the Republican presidential candidate's SSN, cell phone number, and addresses. It also has names and numbers of Trump's agent and lawyer.
The link to the document was also being posted and shared by Anonymous accounts on Twitter.
But pretty much everything in the document is old or found through simple Google searches. Trump's supposed SSN was actually posted last year by an Anonymous-linked hacker group on Facebook, and the website Gawker previously published his cell phone number, which he then turned into a campaign message.
Tech Insider attempted to call the number on Thursday. It's no longer a campaign message, and the automated message now just says the voice mail box is full.
When asked about the supposed "doxxing," Hope Hicks, a spokesperson for Trump's campaign, told Tech Insider: "The government and law enforcement authorities are seeking the arrest of the people responsible for attempting to illegally hack Mr. Trump’s accounts and telephone information."
The release of information comes after Anonymous declared "total war" on Trump earlier this month, rebooting a campaign to take down his websites and expose secrets that began in December of last year.
For now, Operation Trump, or #OpTrump as hackers are referring to it, is focused on looking for vulnerabilities in Trump's websites and launching distributed denial-of-service attacks on them, starting on April 1.
