London, Apr 21 (ANI): A group of hackers have reportedly targeted Britain's biggest abortion provider after an anti-abortion campaigner was jailed for breaking into the charity's site.
Last week, James Jeffrey, 27, a member of hacking group Anonymous, was jailed for two years and eight months after stealing around 10,000 personal records from the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) website.
He hacked into the site after 'disagreeing' with his sister's choice to terminate her pregnancy.
Since his arrest in March 9, there have been 2,500 attempts to hack into BPAS's website by 'copycat hackers,' The Telegraph reports.
Meanwhile, a spokesman from the charity tried to play down the attempted hack attacks - as some hackers are believed to have launched hundreds of attacks within the space of a few minutes.
"This is significantly lower than anything we might have anticipated. There was no impact on our services and women's records are completely secure," the paper quoted her, as saying. (ANI)
