Anonymous Releases Secret Conference Call Between FBI and UK Police
Anonymous strikes again. It has released a 17 minute conference call held Jan. 17, 2012 between the FBI and London's Metropolitan Police about hacking investigations into Anonymous, LulzSec, Antisec and related groups, and the cases of specific defendants and targets, such as Ryan Cleary, Jake Davis and Kayla. They also talk about whether Chronis is T-Flow and the mechanics of an extradition request.
The call reveals British police and the FBI discussing the delay of court proceedings against two alleged members of the LulzSec hacking group, which attacked a number of sites in 2011 including the US Congress and UK Serious Organised Crime Agency.
How embarrassing for the FBI and Metro police. It appears that an FBI agent sent out an email about the conference call and Anonymous had hacked the email account learning about the conference call. [More...]
The latest embarrassment for the authorities was recorded after someone hacked the email of at least one of the 44 recipients on an email headed "Anon-Lulz International Coordination Call" sent on 13 January by Timothy Lauster of the FBI.
The call is on You Tube and you can easily find it by going to Twitter and #Anonymous. (I am not going to post the link but I did listen to the entire call.)
The FBI has confirmed the validity of the call.
"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," it said in a statement. London's Metropolitan Police's central e-crime unit said the matter was being investigated but that no operational risks had been identified.
Anonymous also published the email of the call invitation with the email addresses of those invited, which included law enforcement from the US, UK, Sweden, Ireland and elsewhere.
