FBI Hacked by Anonymous

FBI Hacked by Anonymous

One of the FBI’s private contractors, IRC Federal, was compromised by a cyber-attack last Friday. The hackers, who call themselves AntiSec gained access to IRC Federal’s servers and, in their own words, œlaid nuclear waste to their systems.Later, they released a portion of the collected data on the popular bittorent site, Pirate Bay. Even though their message was littered with anti-American rhetoric and accused IRC Federal of selling out to the “US Empire,AntiSec later asked for understanding, saying that, we are not your enemy, but your citizens.Unfortunately, this is not the first time an FBI affiliate has been hacked, some might remember the recent attack on InfraGard.
