FBI’s biggest cyber enemy has struck again. The hacker group Anonymous has allegedly hacked FBI’s security contractor ManTech International and has found some valuable information according to the group’s latest tweet.
The hacker group Anonymous has a custom to attack FBI related websites on Friday every week. This attack is also seen as a retaliation after FBI helped to arrest some hackers related to the group in Netherlands and Britain.
In the support of its claim, Anonymous offered to show the correspondence between ManTeCH and NATO(North Atlantic Treaty Organization) which includes talks with “NATO Theatre Of Operations”, the tech department of NATO.
No comment was made by ManTech International who provides its services to U.S. Defense, State and Justice Departments after the attack. Ironically, the firm also boasts of its cyber security services.
The involvement of LulzSec cannot be denied in this matter as both these hacker groups have collaborated almost in all attacks.
Recently, these groups gave a call to boycott eBay and PayPal for their refusal to handle financial transactions of whistleblower site Wikileaks. It doesn’t seem that they are going to stop and quit their alleged mission “to ensure freedom in the cyber world”.
If the world’s best security agency cannot secure its website, can we?
