Lessons from Anonymous on #cyberwar - Opinion - Al Jazeera English
The emails make it clear that #HBGary sold rootkits and keyloggers (tools to record and exfiltrate keystrokes surreptitiously) to government contractors for prices between $60,000 and $200,000 each.
Clearly cyber attacks against foreign nationals appear to be fair game.
Dans un email à propos de WikiLeaks :
(...) “the #Amazon to #OVH transition and helped #wikileaks provide access to information during the transition.
It is this level of support we need to attack. These are established proffessionals that have a liberal bent, but ultimately most of them if pushed will choose professional preservation over cause, such is the mentality of most business professionals.”
Et HBGary est loin d’être une « pomme pourrie » isolée dans le milieu de l’infosécurité para-étatique :
The email above indicates that the project to discredit WikiLeaks (and their supporters) was a joint operation by HBGary Federal, Palantir and BericoTechnologies, although the other companies involved were quick to distance themselves from HBGary after the Anonymous hack.
Endgame Systems, a company with almost no public footprint were also thrust into the spotlight, when several of their previously well-guarded reports and company presentations were shared amongst the emails.
In an early email to Aaron Barr, Endgame Systems made it clear that they had “been very careful NOT to have public face on our company”. The CEO of Endgame Systems was clear: “Please let HBgary know we don’t ever want to see our name in a press release.”
