+ - Security Firm that "Outed" Anoymous Hacked-> 1

Submitted by JumperCable
JumperCable (673155) writes "Less than 24 hours since the security firm HBGay Federal released a press release claiming to have outed anonymous, hackers have "seized control of the internet security firm's website, defaced its pages, acquired 60,000 company e-mails, deleted backup files, seized Barr's Twitter account, and took down the founder's website rootkit.com. This is according to a daily Kos post from one of the "outed" self proclaimed member of anonymous

Too boot, hackers have also publicly released a 28 page document that the security firm was attempting to sell the government. According to Barret Brown, "The entry on me, for instance, is entirely inaccurate despite the fact that I have not been a clandestine participant since coming out of the closet months ago." The firm is further mocked with a statement by Bernard Keane, that "the situation is rather hilarious. More to the point, it should demonstrate that HBGary Federal is not only incapable of protecting its clients and informing on folks who were among the first to get involved in Tunisia and Egypt — it is incapable of protecting itself."
