Within hours of learning this, Anonymous infiltrated HBGary Federal's network and websites. Anonymous acquired the document with supposed personal details of anons, along with more than 50,000 company e-mails (~4.71GB) - all of which have now been distributed on the internet. Additionally, his associated websites and social media accounts were hijacked and manipulated to stress how poorly this 'security expert' handles matters of his own security ( http://imagebin.org/... ). Woe to his clients and others who invested in his confidence.
Just a little bump. That 4.7GB of company emails should STILL be causing a huge stink in the global media, had Anonymous been clever about oozing the shit drip by drip in a similar sense as Wikileaks did.
Well, they'd probably also have to do a bunch of journalistic research and strike deals with der Spiegel, Guardian and le Monde (? the French one, was that it?).
Maybe it's not leakage of worldwide diplomatic communications, but just that 4.7GB of emails should be losing lots of high-placed people their jobs and actually should be bringing entire corporations down, exposing the corruption in the US government.
Why is this not being talked about?
And I don't mean the media, I mean HERE.
Check this, for instance, be sure to follow all the fucking links too:http://www.salon.com/about/inside_salon/2011/02/11/threats_against_glenn_greenwald_wikileaks/index.html
That's the HBGary leaked emails showing that BANK OF AMERICA has been trying to hire the fucks at HBGary in order to, yeah, start an online cyber smear campaign against Glenn Greenwald in anticipation of the leaked documents that Wikileaks has been promising on "a major US bank".
Oh yeah, the article is 2 months old. But there's 4.7GB of those emails, if it'd have been dissected like the Wikileaks cables, the list of lulz would go on and on, I'm sure.
I'm thinking Anonymous should be dumping a whole lot more emails of other corps on the Internets... HBGary was obviously just one among many. It's easier too, just pick the low hanging fruits. Remember the social engineering email that got Anon root at one of HBGary's servers? That was luck+social engineering+balls. It won't work everywhere, but if one would try it at 10 similar corporations, they'd probably get 3 hits.
Which reminds me BTW, anyone know, what's up with Wikileaks and the promised documents on this "Major US Bank"? Are they out yet? What's holding up? Do they have a system/plan, maybe let Libya and Japan play out first before stealing the media's eye? They said "beginning of 2011", well that's now. Or did I miss the release and did it go out with a fizzle?
