Did Hackers Leak Donald Trump’s Social Security Number?

Hackers claiming to be a part of the infamous Anonymous hacking group claim to have leaked Donald Trump’s personal details, including his Social Security Number online.

A twitter account purporting to be of the Anonymous hacking group made headlines earlier when they declared “total war” on presidential hopeful and GOP front-runner Donald Trump.

Now, the cyber group, known for targeting and attacking corporations and governments around the world have posted information that appear to be Donald Trump’s personal details, publicly online. The posting, which can be found with a quick Google search includes his birth date and birthplace, the address for the Trump Organization, his legal representation, his agent as well as the names of his parents, wife and children.

Also, the details that were a part of the public dump include Donald Trump’s alleged Social Security Number as well as his personal cell phone number.

At the time of declaring ‘total war’ the Anonymous video had urged viewers to target Trump’s website “trumpchicago.com” on April 1, or April Fool’s Day. However, the group seems to have gotten to task early, going by the most recent news of hack made public. Anonymous’ video declaring “total war” has gained over 2.5 million views from the time of posting can be found here.

In an email to ABC News, Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks did not confirm whether the information posted online was indeed legitimate. However, she stated that “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.

However, a prominent Anonymous account released a tweet following the public posting of the documents and information. It stated:
