Whilst usually it is the FBI closing down illegal file sharing sites, Anonymous have claimed that they were responsible for taking an illegal-child-porn-sharing website offline.

Anonymous went on to say that this is just the begging of a ‘vigilante’ styled mission, and they will be taking down a further 40 illegal-incident-file-sharing websites, and posting the users login details openly.

The statement reads as: “We are eliminating 40+ child pornography websites, among these is Lolita City, one of the largest child pornography websites to date containing more than 100GB of child pornography.”

Anonymous continues to say: The site and hosts were “enabling paedophiles to view innocent children, fuelling their issues and putting children at risk of abduction, molestation, rape, and death,” the statement added.
