AnonOps NZ encourages Kiwis to "send [MPs] your love"

AnonOps NZ releases publicly-available information on MPs, links to semi-nude Stephanie Key

In a pastebin upload linked from its latest video, AnonOps NZ has posted "intelligence" on fourteen MPs who voted in favour of the GCSB bill last month. The information posted is all publicly available, primarily contact details for the MPs themselves, and names of spouses and children.

Contact details are not provided for children, and only listed for Peter Dunne's wife Jennifer Mackrell, also a government employee with the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA). No other spouses' contact details are given.

None of this information is new to the internet, and much of it is actively publicised by MPs.

The posted information contains a direct link to a partially-nude image of Stephanie Key, daughter of Prime Minister John Key. The image is hosted on the RadioLIVE website, where it appears as one of several in a gallery posted last week. The images were taken for Paris Design Week, and RadioLIVE has quoted the Prime Minister as saying "The photographs were part of her curriculum work, and we are very proud of the work she is doing."

Other details include MPs' dates of birth, office and in some cases home addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, Facebook and Twitter pages, and websites.

None of this information is new to the internet, and much of it (websites, social media contacts and office numbers/addresses) is actively publicised by MPs and their respective parties.

In the video, AnonOps NZ tells viewers "Fellow Anonymous members, you know what to do. Citizens of New Zealand send them your love."

The post is tagged as part of 'Operation Kiwi Freedom', an anti-GCSB-act campaign by purported members of hactivist group Anonymous.
