Hacker group, Anonymous is not the type of group to sit quietly. After several high profile targets and most recently, Paypal; the hacker group is at it again. This time the target comes in the form of US FBI Contractor Mantech. According to a report by TechEYE, Anonymous claims to have attacked the network of the government of US Contractor, Mantech. In the intrusion they claim to have acquired sensitive correspondence relating to NATO, and posted it online.
Anonymous strikes the FBI again!
The report goes on to state that AnonymousIRC displayed emails, which prove that they breached into the network and obtained information connected to NATO contracting offices. The data obtained by them shows that an email speaks about deploying tech staff to a war zone in which NATO is involved. Anonymous mocks by saying that they were sure that Taliban could use this information. According to a blog post by Anonymous, they said that they were providing these Mantech documents, so the public can see for themselves how their tax money was being spent.
In various Twitter posts, Anonymous had claimed they had leaked nearly 400 MB of data pertaining to FBI, NATO and the US Defense. This was part of their AntiSec campaign #F**kFBIFridayIII. This was their third attack on the FBI, the previous ones claiming the websites of Infragard, Unveillance and IRC Federal.
