Honestly, I’ve been waiting for something, anything, to start happening again with “Operation Whales” (#OpWhales), an international hacking operation largely led by the Anonymous hacker collective. In the past, particularly throughout the course of 2015 and 2016, #OpWhales was at one time considered to be 1 of the 10 most active/influential Anonymous operations worldwide, with several major hacks, leaks and defaces of multinational corporations – such as Nissan, whose country of origin (Japan) has historically been one of the worlds foremost exploiters of commercial whaling.

However, at least from the perspective of a hacking news writer, #OpWhales has essentially been dead in the water for the better part of the last 2-3 years running – no pun intended. That was until I stumbled upon a leak tonight, originally posted online March 30th, by an activist going by the name of “Jazzy Dolphin.”
While it is uncertain what their motives were or what the common thread between all the companies implicated the leaks are, what we do know is that well over 200 emails across 15 Norwegian companies were named in the data dump. Presumably, the companies were named because of their close connections to the international fishing industry, in retaliation for #OpKillingBay which takes place on the Faroe Islands every year. As such, you are asked to spam bomb/email all of the individuals named in the leak, letting them know how disgusted you are with Norway’s annual “tradition” – demanding that the country put an end to it.
