Anonymous hacks into call between the FBI and Scotland Yard about hackers and puts the recording on youtube
More here: Anonymous hacks call between FBI and Scotland Yard about hackers
“Do you want to talk about cheese?” is the conversation opener in a trans-Atlantic phone call intercepted by hacker collective Anonymous between the FBI and the UK’s Metropolitan Police (aka Scotland Yard).
Once the issue of cheese had been dealt with, the participants in the conversation moved on to more pressing matters—such as how to deal with Anonymous. Of course, they had no idea the group was recording their conversation. And once it was over, the hackers uploaded the call to the Web.
Though part of the conversation centered on trivial matters, such as the merits of the British city of Sheffield (“it’s not exactly a jewel in England’s crown”), more important subjects were covered, such as the current situation with Ryan Cleary, a British man arrested last June for his alleged involvement with hacking group LulzSec. Another alleged hacker, whose name was bleeped out by Anonymous, was described by a British operative as “a pain in the bum.”
The FBI admitted that the call, which took place some time in January, was genuine and that it was now looking for those responsible for recording it and putting it online.
