The following message appeared on The Daily Stormer:

“THIS SITE IS NOW UNDER THE CONTROL OF ANONYMOUS

WE HAVE TAKEN THIS SITE IN THE NAME OF HEATHER HEYER A VICTIM OF WHITE SUPREMACIST TERRORISM

FOR TOO LONG THE DAILY STORMER AND ANDREW ANGLIN HAVE SPEWED THEIR PUTRID HATE ON THIS SITE
THAT WILL NOT BE HAPPENING ANYMORE

WE HAVE ALL OF THE DETAILS ON THE SERVERS AND WILL BE RELEASING THE DATA WHEN WE FEEL THE TIME IS RIGHT

WE HAVE ALSO GATHERED LOCATIONAL DATA ON ANGLIN HIMSELF AND ARE SENDING OUR ALLIES IN LAGOS TO PAY HIM A VISIT IN PERSON

THIS EVIL CANNOT BE ALLOWED TO STAND

IT TOOK A UNITED FORCE OF ELITE HACKERS FROM AROUND THE WORLD TO BREACH THE SYSTEMS AND THE FIREWALL
WE HAVE HAD THE DAILY STORMER IN OUR SITES FOR MONTHS NOW

THE EVENTS OF CHARLOTTESVILLE ALERTED US TO THE NEED FOR IMMEDIATE ACTION
WE WANT YOU NAZIS TO KNOW: YOUR TIME IS SHORT

WE WILL ALLOW THE SITE TO REMAIN ONLINE FOR 24 HOURS SO THE WORLD CAN WITNESS THE HATE
THEN WE WILL SHUT IT DOWN

PERMANENTLY

HACKERS OF THE WORLD HAVE UNITED IN DEFENSE OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE

YOU SHOULD HAVE EXPECTED US”

However, the hacker group denies any involvement in the hack, saying the cyber hit was low grade and could have been easily reversed. The group suggests the hack is fake.

Daily Beast reports:

Leaders of the hacking collective Anonymous are denying reports that they hijacked the notorious white-supremacist website The Daily Stormer early Monday. A post near the top of the site declares “End of Hate: Anonymous Now in Control of Daily Stormer” next to an image of the hackers’ signature Guy Fawkes mask. Your Anon News, a Twitter account linked to Anonymous, posted statements suggesting the hate site itself was perpetuating a hoax to draw attention in the hours after its domain host GoDaddy gave it 24 hours before it was shut down for its ugly coverage of the Charlottesville white-supremacist attack Saturday.
