Hackers Intercept FBI, Scotland Yard Call
From the Associated Press, as reported by Time.com.
“A sensitive conference call between FBI and British police’s cybercrime investigators was recorded by the very people they were trying to catch, officials and hackers said Friday.
Hacking collective Anonymous published a roughly 15-minute-long recording of a conference call apparently devoted to tracking and prosecuting members of the loosely-knit group.
The FBI said the information “was intended for law enforcement officers only and was illegally obtained.”
“A criminal investigation is under way to identify and hold accountable those responsible,” the bureau said in a statement.
It’s not clear how the hackers got their hands on the recording, which appears to have been edited to bleep out the names of some of the suspects being discussed.”
