Submission + - HBGary planned to sabotage Wikileaks, Other Groups (nytimes.com)

artor3 writes: As you may recall, some hackers recently infiltrated the networks of HBGary Federal, after the security firm had sought to expose participants in Anonymous' DDoS of sites that had come out against Wikileaks. The emails they obtained show that HBGary had proposed several nefarious plots to undermine Wikileaks, as well as some liberal organizations, on behalf of Bank of America and the US Chamber of Commerce. One plan was to submit fake stories to Wikileaks, and then expose the fraud, hoping to cast doubt on their other material. Another scheme, ironically, proposed identifying and exploiting security flaws in the networks of liberal groups opposing the US Chamber.

Predictably, BoA and the Chamber are denying all knowledge.
