The law enforcement authorities continue to investigate whether the attack on cyber-espionage company Hacking Team (the leak exposed the company’s dealings with repressive regimes and vulnerabilities in user software) could have been an inside job.
Investigators explained that the suggestion was that 6 former employees could be involved in the attack on Hacking Team, which resulted in 400GB of private data being leaked and published online. According to media reports, those 6 suspects were also placed under investigation in another case for revealing Hacking Team’s industrial secrets. This separate investigation was launched after a complaint by the Hacking Team CEO, David Vincenzetti, over the leaking of source code for software. The latter turned out to also be exposed as part of the information dumped online for everyone to see.
The company’s CEO has previously suggested that a government might have been behind the hacking of Hacking Team’s systems. The mater is that the company is engaged in developing software used by law enforcement and intelligence agencies (of such level as the US Federal Bureau of Investigation) in order to hack into and spy on the mobile devices and desktops of suspects.
If you remember, the Hacking Team’s email archive was also exposed in the hack, revealing deals with some repressive regimes, countries widely criticized over their human rights records and countries subject to economic sanctions.
It turned out that Hacking Team had designed a system able to remotely hack companies, governments and individuals through Wi-Fi carried into range by a drone.
