Anonymous Operation of the Day: #OpAngel

Anonymous has been quite involved in seeking revenge after the death of Aaron Swartz this past weekend, from proposing a peaceful protest in Washington D.C. on January 25 with the hashtag#OpAngel to deterring the Westboro Baptist Church from protesting his funeral. Now, an Anonymous offshoot known as @TylerSec claims that it has released 33 gigabytes of JSTOR articles allegedly stolen from the repository by the late computer programmer. Linked in a Pastebin communique this morning, the story has been circulating Twitter with the hashtag #JusticeForAaronSwartz, though Gawker writer Adrien Chen tweeted that these documents may be the same articles that Wikipedian Greg Maxwell released as a torrent in July 2011 after Swartz’ arrest.
