Anonymous is at it again with their latest hacking escapade. This time they targeted the UK police and FBI.
UK police and the FBI held a conference call last week concerning cyber security, especially focusing on Anonymous and LulzSec members. The email planning the conference call was intercepted by Anonymous and shared on the net.
Naked Security confirms that the email titled “Anon-Lulz International Coordination Call” was sent to “over 40 law enforcement officers in the USA, UK, Ireland, Netherlands, France and Sweden.”
Anonymous used the leaked email to get into the phone conference and record the entirety of it. The entire 16 minute conversation has been uploaded to YouTube, among other places.
The conversation details the continued investigation into Anonymous and LulzSec. While most of the names of the hackers are censored, two hackers are explicitly named - Jake Davis (suspected of being the public face of Anonymous) and Ryan Clearly (who allegedly launched a DDoS attack on the Serious Organised Crime Agency’s Web site).
The FBI and UK Police did finally confirm that their call was intercepted, but the damage was already done.
Anonymous has, of course, been poking fun at the FBI since the hack was made clear:
We'll continue to keep you up to date on the latest Anonymous escapades as they happen. They're promising some "lulzy" stuff today.
