Another FBI Contractor Hacked!
Oops they did it again! As part of their F**k FBI Friday holiday, Anonymous claimed to have hacked another FBI contractor, IRC Federal, and dumped its content at The Pirate Bay.
The action, in the name of the #AntiSec campaign, was announced with a tweet:
containing the links to a torrent hosted at The Pirate Bay (currenty unavailable) and to a pastebin txt release.
This action follows the first original F**k FBI Friday, a term dubbed by the infamous hacker group LulzSec, to describe the first hack performed against Infragard, an FBI affiliate, on June, the 3rd (another black friday for information security). This time the leaked material apparently include databases, private emails, contracts, development schematics, and internal documents for various government institutions including a proposal for the FBIto develop a “Special Identities Modernization (SIM) Project” to “reduce terrorist and criminal activity by protecting all records associated withtrusted individuals and revealing the identities of those individuals who maypose serious risk to the United States and its allies”.
Even if the Lulz Boat decided to haul down the flag and sail towards more peaceful shores, the sea of hactivism is far from being quiet…
