Submission + - Anonymous To FEMA: Shall We Play A Game? (informationweek.com)

CowboyRobot writes: Offended by FEMA's portrayal of fictional hacktivists as anti-American and easily defeated, Anonymous has struck back with a data dump. "Hello FEMA, Anonymous here, shall we play a game?" So read a Wed. communication from the hacktivist group Anonymous, which appears to be catching up on unfinished business in the form of a data dump — aka dox — of a database obtained from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Beyond the dox being meant as a warning against future "oblique and cowardly implied threats" against Anonymous, the group also lodged a demand: "Please return to us Barrett Brown, we are asking nicely. Pretty please, with sugar on top." Brown, a former Anonymous spokesman, was charged in Dec. 2012 in a 12-count indictment that included accusations of access device fraud, ID theft and possessing stolen credit card numbers.
