Anonymous strikes Dutch website promoting pedophilia, releases names and personal information belonging to website users.

(Because of the nature of the pedophile friendly website a link will not be posted. However, at the time of publication, the website in question was unavailable.)

(Dox – Personal information about people on the Internet, often including real name, known aliases, address, phone number, SSN, credit card number, etc.)
Earlier this month, LulzFinancial released hundreds of emails from Syrian President Bashar Assad’s office. 78 email accounts belonging to Assad’s aides and advisers were hacked, including the Minister of Presidential Affairs Mansour Fadlallah Azzam, and Assad’s media adviser, Bouthaina Shaaban.
Also earlier this month, LulzFinancial took down the website belonging to the hatefilled homophobic Christian cult known as the Westboro Baptist Church. In addition to taking down the Westboro Baptist Church website, LulzFinancial also revealed personal information belonging to alleged members of Stormfront, a neo-Nazi hate group.
