Anonymous Posts Recording Of FBI & Scotland Yard Call

From the New York Times:

The international hackers group known as Anonymous turned the tables on the F.B.I. by listening in on a conference call last month between the bureau, Scotland Yard and other foreign police agencies about their joint investigation of the group and its allies.

Anonymous posted a 16-minute recording of the call on the Web on Friday and crowed about the episode in via Twitter: “The FBI might be curious how we’re able to continuously read their internal comms for some time now.”

Hours later, the group took responsibility for hacking the Web site of a law firm that had represented Staff Sgt. Frank Wuterich, who was accused of leading a group of Marines responsible for killing 24 unarmed civilians in Haditha, Iraq, in 2005. The group said it would soon make public “mails, faxes, transcriptions” and other material related to the case, taken from the site of Puckett & Faraj, a Washington-area law firm. A voluminous 2.55 gigabyte file labeled as those files was later posted on a site often used by hackers, Pirate Bay…

     “a 15-year-old kid who’s basically just doing this all for attention and is a bit of an idiot.” (from source article)

    Doing it for attention? Attention from who? The FBI? I would think attention is the last thing this kid wanted.
    Sounds like the kid has a mind of his own and acts on it. A bit of an idiot perhaps, but the guy who made that statement is a bigger idiot if he actually thinks that statement is true. It shows a certain cluelessness about the motivations of people who take up the “Anonymous” cause for their own.

    More than likely, the statement:  “a 15-year-old kid who’s basically just doing this all for attention” is a classic ploy to invalidate any true motivations people may have for joining such a cause.

    LAME…….

      if they didn’t want attention they wouldn’t have a name or any public presence, they would release data through proxies and cutouts that couldn’t be tied together, if anonymous aren’t a black op then they are a collection of exceedingly vain fools. If you want to successfully conduct a long term guerrilla  action against a numerically superior opponent you don’t give them a target to attack

        You are talking about attention by proxy or alias, not direct attention or personal fame.

          the public or law enforcement should have no idea the group exists, releases should be made via news media, different people in different countries every time never using the same one twice, but they would rather be a cool group you would expect in a cheesy movie or comic book

    I think the real question here is whether “Anonymous” is CIA, NSA, or both?

    • RightLeftWheel | Feb 4, 2012 at 6:07 pm |

      Or a UN funded group made to stir up social unrest so various agenda’s can be carried out. 

    • Why?  Because they hacked a relatively insecure email system to get the details of a conference call, and then made a phone call?  There’s hardly anything far fetched about this…  We’ve grown used to security blunders by the FBI, and given that articles talking about this incident including suggestions to them to get better “password security”, I think it’s safe to say they’re not getting serious about maintaining a secure system anytime in the near future (seriously?? passwords?  no tokens, or at least public keys?).  Had this involved say, breaching SIPRNet, perhaps I’d jump on the conspiracy bandwagon with you, but for now, I’ll stick with not attributing to malice or an omnipotent enemy what can very easily be attributed to stupidity.

      • I don’t believe his assertion was based on this one instance alone. Anonymous has been suspicious for a while now. 

  5. Love the start of this phone call, so funny.
