Dunno, Jussi seems like he told him to F off a few times regarding what he wants and even went above his head regarding his conduct.

Still; we all know Jussi is the man behind the plan don't we?

Him or that bus boy in that restaurant...spooky!!

More fall-out for HBGary ...

BBC: Anonymous victim HBGary goes to ground



The company's founder, Greg Hoglund had been scheduled to give a talk at the RSA Security conference in San Francisco this week, but pulled out at the last minute. [...] The company also withdrew from an associated exhibition.




n e-mails from early January 2011, it is claimed that Mr Hoglund sent out proposals to develop a spying program, known as a rootkit, that would run on Windows-based computers.

Yet more MSM and industry feedback on HBGary ...
Forbes: HBGary Execs Run For Cover As Hacking Scandal Escalates

Here are a few tidbits ...


Rarely in the history of the cybersecurity industry has a company become so toxic so quickly as HBGary Federal. Over the last week, many of the firm’s closest partners and largest clients have cut ties with the Sacramento startup.



[...] HBGary chief executive Greg Hoglund had planned to give two presentations at the conference. HBGary Federal CEO Barr last week canceled his talk at the simultaneous B-Sides conference, which would have focused on his expose on Anonymous.



Bank of America, the Chamber of Commerce, Palantir and Berico have all since released statements that say they’ve ended their relationship or never had a formal relationship with the company.

I'm sure the content will be back - just not on that same URL or domain. It's probably already mirrored all over the place.

PS: Here is a link to one sample e-mail (pretty incriminating one too).


I think that someone could automate much of the social reconnaissance process and could create a mechanism for getting people to open malware that is much more effective than what exists today. This capability could be highly targeted based on profession, company, friends, etc.

CEO HBGary Federal Inc.
