Hacker Planned Abortion Leaks

A British hacker affiliated with the collective Anonymous revealed in court Saturday that he had planned to release the names and details of women who had abortions after he stole some 10,000 database records from the provider British Pregnancy Advisory Service. James Jeffery, 27, confessed to his crimes and admitted to two offenses under the Computer Misuse Act in a West Midlands court. He was arrested Friday after boasting of his crime on Twitter. He had planned to release the data, which included personal details of women who registered with BPAS, but had a change of heart because he thought it would be wrong.
