WASHINGTON, March 18 (UPI) -- The hacker group Anonymous, after declaring "total war" on Donald Trump's presidential bid, said it published the Republican front-runner's Social Security number, personal cellphone number and several other bits of personal information.

The group posted information that was already available online such as the names of the business mogul's legal representation, agent, parents and spouse.

The authenticity of the cellphone number and Social Security number Anonymous published in the data dump could not be independently confirmed by UPI. The cellphone voicemail message, which did not identify Trump by name, was full on Friday morning.

Trump's representatives said officials were "seeking the arrest of the people responsible for attempting to illegally hack Mr. Trump's accounts and telephone information."

The data dump comes just two days after Anonymous, a loosely connected group of hacktivists, threatened to take down one of Trump's websites on April 1. Anonymous said it was targeting Trump because of his "inconsistent and hateful campaign."
