Hacktivist group says 14GB of data includes evidence that Bank of America engaged in an effort to "spy and collect information on private citizens."


...




In its latest salvo against the financial industry, Anonymous claims to have leaked sensitive information related to Bank of America executives and the company's alleged effort to "spy and collect information on private citizens."

Par:AnoIA, a group that identifies itself as the Anonymous Intelligence Agency, said in a press release (PDF) yesterday that it had released 14 gigabytes of data on hundreds of thousands of executives at companies around the world, including Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters, and TEKSystems, which the hackvisit collective claims was hired last year to spy on hackers and social activists.

As stated not exactly a hack. I wonder if this ties in to BOA setting up a team to deal with Wikileaks.. Banks should not really be spying on private citizens they should be dealing with money. I guess money and politics is impossible to separate

Okay..... I'm interested but frankly, out of patience with Anonymous when it comes to these things. Hack Hack hack...that's all they ever threaten and almost nothing EVER really comes of it. Nothing valuable, I can think of, has EVER really come of their efforts. Can anyone else name anything truly meaningful Anonymous has "liberated" for data that made a difference? I know they've burned names and personal details but what difference did that make outside hurting individual people? What have they done that, today, the world is a bit different for?

Wikileaks DID make a difference by what they released...now if only Anony would live up to half of what they threaten or promise. Just half of it. We'd see some progress pretty quick. God knows, places like BofA HAVE plenty to hide ... We just need someone with the guts to get and release it.

Remember the hard drives Wiki was supposed to have had before it all blew up on them? Those were supposed to have been HD's out of BofA executive level computers with all the dirty laundry on them. One more promise made and empty in the end. I hope THIS pans out.

yup, anon needs information that involves criminality rather than just mundane info...if they don't, they are giving ammunition for further restrictions of the internet, to the very people they are going after. and that leads others to think that this is a big plot by the banks themselves to discredit anon.

Every time i see a thread about anon it always "claims" they got and released all this info...soooooo where the heck is it.
I see links to articles about the same info, like what you have in your op, which i do appreciate your time and effort but..."wheres the beef?"

Edit to add: ok, i will correct myself...

I found the "stash" from the list inside the pdf file linked to in the article...
Info is clear now...anon is upset that banks and other multinational companies are trying to protect themselves, go figure....

Sometimes it is against the Terms and Conditions of ATS to link to hacked or illegally obtained data. I have had threads taken down for it before. Google is your friend..

The things these people are doing are silly, nothing will ever come from hacking the "special state protection service of Azerbaijan" or the "watch tower bible and tract society of Pennsylvania"

So many things they could be doing in thier "war againt the US government" but instead we get german chambers of commerce most of which they cant even translate or decipher...

I still stand by THIS THREAD
Sorry ... shameless plug i know but it is stl relavent (please do not s or f linked thread) but by all means...read it!

No, because they don't hack, they have taken credit for the work of others like TCX,Data

There is probably a lot of truth to that, actually. Hmm... You're right in saying the world class level of hackers don't even hint at or joke in public about anything like it. Some subjects just don't come up, even real world with that level of ability, I'd imagine.

Something else just occurred to me as well.. The ones who are that skilled, spent 10 hours a day for years to get that good ..and still spend that kind of time to stay that good. They wouldn't have time for a lot of bragging anyway, huh?

Then there is a logical question to ask, if these are illegal activities and anon and such have truly "declared war" then how it they are able to maintain this par:anoia website for the past 2 years?
