If you remember, hacker group Anonymous published data from a number of Turkish government sites online some time ago. Now the group has posted information from the FBI contractor IRC Federal on the Internet as well.
Anonymous called the new operation “Fuck FBI Friday”, and posted materials from IRC Federal. The dumped data includes contracts, development schematics, private documents and e-mails. All information was posted to the world’s largest BitTorrent tracker site The Pirate Bay. Anonymous released a statement, saying that the ownage of another government-contracted company, IRC Federal, is now exposed. The company in question is accused by hackers of bragging about their multi-million dollar partnership with such agencies as the FBI, Army, and NASA to name a few, and about selling out their “skills” to the American empire. Apparently, Anonymous didn’t like that and dropped their databases and private emails, while defacing their professional looking site.
The dumped information includes different contracts, development schematics, and other documents, all found in e-mails. The materials in question were intended for different government institutions. For example, there was a proposal for the FBI to develop a project aimed at reducing terrorist and criminal activity through revealing the identities of people who might pose risk to the country. Besides, the hackers found fingerprinting contracts for the Department of Justice and biometrics development for the military. Among other data published online there was login info to different VPNs and a number of Department of Energy login access panels.
Before Anonymous started the drop, it published a personal message to the IRC Federal and its employees, asking them to stop working for the oligarchy and start working against it if they placed any value on freedom. The employees were encouraged to stop helping the corporations and a government using unethical means to protect entertainment and other industries.
The latest dump is a bit more than 100MB in size, and its implications still remain to be seen. According to the rumours, the release was planned to be made on the 4th of July, but apparently the dump was delayed until now due to unknown reasons. Operation “AntiSec” is on its way, though.
