he also lost his bail appeal. the police were "aggressive" in taking him down because it was holed up in a safe room brandishing a shotgun

Seems that Anonymous has hacked a conference call between FBI and Scotland Yard. I thought things like that was done by NSA or GHCQ (the acronym isn't exactly correct, hopefully you know what I refer to)

how it happens is that someone involved in the call or setting up the call gave the ability to access it to "anonymous" or are themselves part of said group

yep "Anonymous also published a top secret email apparently sent by an FBI agent, which gave details and a password for accessing the call.

Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2096035/Secret-FBI-Scotland-Yard-tapped-Anonymous--trying-catch.html#ixzz1lM3FISko"


so that agent is compromised. this isnt hacking this is spy 101. him or or someone close gave the info to "the hackers" probably by just forwarding the email. or it might even be a setup. the leak gets anonymous to access the call and then law enforcement uses that as a way to trace individuals who accessed the call.

According to the article "The email to officials in the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands, Sweden and France had a phone number and password for accessing the call" - in other words the access details could have come from any number of sources. I very much doubt if this is a set-up or sting operation, in my opinion the likelihood of the information simply having been leaked by an Anonymous sympathiser is a magnitude greater.

As for tracing the identity or location of the person making the recording, that'll only happen if the person in question is an idiot and unacquainted with the tools used to avoid exactly that. Not very likely then, if an Anonymous member made the recording.

i mean they might be able to trace the path of the leak. seed the email to certain individuals you feel might be compromised. when anonymous makes a big deal about gaining access you have your proof that one of your seeds worked. that gives places to direct their investigation. once they find where the leak started they can then work up the ladder like they do with drug busts.

they would also , i assume, have access to phone records to show which phone numbers accessed the call. they might have even set up multiple access codes- one for "players" in the sting and another for people accessing through the leak. if the sent "brown" to the folks in on it but "green" to the person not in on it and "green" gets used then you know that guy is the source, etc.

Anonymous Goes on Megaupload Revenge Spree: DoJ, RIAA, MPAA, and Universal Music All Offline

"Anonymous has sure been quiet lately, but today's federal bust of Megaupload riled 'em up good: a retaliatory strike against DoJ.gov (and plenty of other foes) leaving them completely dead.

DownForEveryoneOrJustMe.com is reporting the department's site as universally nuked, and an Anonymous-affiliated Twitter account is boasting success. This is almost certainly the result of a quickly-assembled DDoS attack—and easily the widest in scope and ferocity we've seen in some time. If you had any doubts Anonymous is still a hacker wrecking ball, doubt no more.

The combination of the hacking nebula's SOPA animosity—they've been a vocal opponent of the bill since its inception—combined with today's sudden Megaupload news has made the group bubble over: hundreds upon hundreds of Anon operatives are in a plotting frenzy, chatting about which site will go down next. In Anon's eyes, the government and media interests are responsible for the undue destruction of Megaupload (and the arrest of four of its operators), so it'll be exactly those entities that're feeling the pain right now. Pretty much every company that makes movies, TV, or music, along with the entirety of the federal government, is in Anonymous' crosshairs."

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/46604981...ence-security/

It seems the Anonymous supporters that participated in that spree were volunteering their financial data for some of Mr DotCom's associates/competitors.

Quote:
After the Jan. 20 raid on Megaupload, a law enforcement sting that drew the immediate anger of Anonymous hackers, an unnamed attacker took a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack tool called Slowloris, popular with Anonymous supporters, and rigged it to include the Zeus Trojan, a devious piece of malware used to siphon victims' online banking credentials.

That same day, an Anonymous-backed list of several different DDoS attack tools hit the Web. Backed by numerous Anonymous-affiliated blog postings and tweets, supporters were urged to download one of the tools, which would enable them to launch DDoS attacks from their own computers against big-name Anonymous targets, including the U.S. Department of Justice, the FBI, Universal Music Group and the Recording Industry Association of America.

The trojanized Slowloris link was on the list, meaning countless people who thought they were supporting Anonymous' Operation Megaupload mission — targets also included Warner Music Group, the New Zealand police and the Motion Picture Association of America — were actually compromising their own financial security, the security firm Symantec reported.

Did you link to the correct article? The linked article says that the the justice said that the order "may well be a nullity."

I assumed that was either a typo or it was lost in translation, unless he somehow got married to one of the arresting officers?

The argument is that they filed the wrong paperwork on purpose, because it allowed them to shortcut due process. Basically, the paperwork they tried to use let them seize his assets without first allowing the defendant a hearing. In other words, it gave them the ability to destroy his business without giving him a chance to defend himself.

Whether or not you're a fan of this guy, that's not the way the law is supposed to work.
