Earlier this week we brought you news that Anonymous was planning to launch “total war” on Donald Trump. Today, the hacktivist’s fired the opening salvo.

The group followed through on earlier threats by posting extensive personal information about Trump — including a social security number, home address, birth certificate and phone numbers. It’s not clear at this time how much of this information is accurate.

A spokesperson for Trump told Re/code government and law enforcement authorities were seeking arrest for the person(s) responsible for illegally hacking Trump’s accounts but declined to provide further details.

What’s also unclear at this time is if the hack was related to threats made in a letter sent to the Manhattan apartment of Trump’s son, Eric, yesterday. The letter threatened to harm his two children if the candidate remains in the race.
