This is no small threat; the FBI have confirmed the interception, saying this during an interview “The information was intended for law enforcement officers only and was illegally obtained. A criminal investigation is under way to identify and hold accountable those responsible.” However, it is unknown as to how Anonymous was able to retrieve the info, yet a lawyer for one of the suspects claims it was taken from an email with it attached rather than intercepted during the call.
It’s truly ironic that a hacking group has stolen information on the subject of hacking from one of the most secure organisations in the world. The email itself was sent to law enforcers in the UK, US, Sweden, Ireland amongst others, asking them to discuss Anonymous, Lulzsec, Antisec and other related groups.
Anonymous appear to have bleeped out the names of members of their group, for obvious security, but leaves things like opening pleasantries and other names in. Also, on Friday, the hackers took down the site of the Greek justice ministry after their government signed a global copyright treaty, related to SOPA and PIPA.
