#CyberFLASH: Online fundraising campaign for alleged Anonymous hacker and asylum seeker Matt DeHart mysteriously shut down


An online legal defence fundraising campaign for Matt DeHart, the former U.S. airman and Anonymous hacker seeking refugee protection in Canada, has been shut down without explanation.
