Establishing Digital Trust: Don't Sacrifice Security for Convenience
Members of Anonymous recently published thousands of documents stolen from the Cambodian government in protest of the arrest and extradition of Gottfrid Svartholm Warg, co-founder of The Pirate Bay.
"Anonymous released a short statement and links to over 5,000 sensitive government documents as part of a new campaign dubbed #OpTPB," writes The Register's Phil Muncaster. "'In retaliation for extradition by Cambodian gov of our fella brother Gottfrid, we present this release of dozen government agencies and offices in Cambodia doxxed like hell,' it said."
"Within the file dump, the resumes of military personnel, government expense records, court case notes and lost passport records are just some of the downloadable items," writes ZDNet's Charlie Osborne. "Indian and Pakistani records are also included."
"Sweden has been on the lookout for Svartholm ever since he failed to appear for his 12-month sentence after he was found guilty of aiding copyright infringement in 2009," writes The Next Web's Emil Protalinski. "The 27-year-old’s sentence was upheld even though he was absent from court hearings in 2010 due to ill-health. Along with the 12 month sentence, Svartholm is also due to pay 30 million kronor ($4.48 million) in damages."
