Anonymous Releases Law Firm Emails On Haditha
It's been a busy day for Anonymous, which in addition to publishing the FBI-London police telconference call, has hacked the website of the law firm Puckett & Faraj which represents Sgt. Frank Wuterich, the marine who recently got a sweetheart deal for his role in the Haditha killings. You can view Anonymous' message (not the e-mails) here.
The link to the e-mails was posted on Pirate Bay in the last hour. And no, I'm not reading them. I don't have a Torrent program to open them and I'm not downloading one. [More...]
That's unfortunate, but I always wonder why lawyers put everything in emails. Do they think their silly disclaimers will protect them? Whatever happened to fax machines, Fedex and the U.S. mail for sensitive material? Sensitive client affidavits and case discovery shouldn't be attached to emails in the first place. No wonder legal malpractice policies started including automatic riders for data breaches this year.
E-mail is not secure. It's how Anonymous learned of the FBI-UK police teleconference call in the first place. It's pretty obvious the Government is no match for Anonymous and Anonymous can hack anything. As they say, Expect Them. Better to stay on their good side. (So don't bother to put nasty comments about them here, I'll probably take them down.)
