Anonymous Hacked FBI Call

The hacking collective Anonymous recorded a call between investigators on both sides of the pond—who were talking about Anonymous. The 15-minute-long recording of a conference call between British and American investigators was “illegally obtained,” the Bureau said, and an investigation into who hacked the call is underway. The group, which has targeted the sites of governments and law enforcement agencies before, bragged on Twitter that the FBI “might be curious how we’re able to continuously read their internal comms for some time now.” On the call, investigators discussed an ongoing case involving two British men with ties to Anonymous.
