Anonymous, a group of online activists, has attacked a security company that was investigating the collective.
The website of HBGary Federal was defaced with a message from Anonymous, as the group had discovered that HBGary Federal was planning to divulge alleged members of Anonymous to the FBI. In addition, Anonymous downloaded over 60,000 emails from HBGary Federal and posted them on The Pirate Bay file-sharing website, according to security company Sophos.
"You think you've gathered full names and addresses of the 'higher-ups' of Anonymous? You haven't," the group posted on the HBGary Federal website. "You think Anonymous has a founder and various co-founders? False."
