Hacks continue as FBI claims to have dismantled Anonymous

From GlobalPost:

001-anonymous-maskThe FBI is declaring victory over Anonymous in a series of statements claiming the hacker collective is no longer able to carry out large, successful operations because most of its “largest players” have been arrested or detained by US law enforcement authorities.

“Has anyone seen my leg? I’m in pieces over here!” tweeted one Anonymous-affiliated account. “SHOUTOUTZ TO ALL TEH DISMANTLEZ CREWZ OUT THERE IN SCARED OF TEH FBI LAND LOLOLOLOL,” tweeted @OpLastResort, an account managed by Anons closely associated with the collective’s most recent hacks.

The @OpLastResort account then dumped a large amount of information stolen from what appear to be servers used by the FBI’s Regional Forensics Computer Laboratory (RFCL). A large amount of the information appears to have been scrubbed from computer files as early as January of this year. Such data can only be obtained with direct access to servers.

Personal information from the data can also be taken and used in “social engineering” and phishing attacks to gain further access to secure information.

    Apparently the FBI has a hard time understanding the concept of decentralization.

  2. Don’t worry guy’s we got the biggest cell in the cancer, its sure to fall apart now.

  3. The FBI wants you to know that it’s a match for a loose association of socially awkward high-school kids.

    Not sure why.

      They project onto others the limits of their own intelligence and understanding.
