Establishing Digital Trust: Don't Sacrifice Security for Convenience
As part of an ongoing campaign targeting surveillance-related companies called #F*ckTheSurveillanceState, hacker Ag3ntBlack recently breached the Web site for the Australian security company Security Intelligence Group (SIG), and published a wide range of stolen data on Pastebin.
SIG's company profile states, "SIG is a progressive company that is operated by a highly trained team of professionals with over twenty years of experience in law-enforcement training and the private security industry with offices in Australia, USA and Israel."
"oHai... Security Intelligence Group... #LULZ on you not so secure are we?" the hacker wrote in a statement accompanying the leaked data. "Anonymous is here for the Revolution and to smash the corporate surveillance state... but also for t3h Lulz... so from #F*ckYouSec to you... with much disgust and dissent F*CK YOU and F*ck The Pigs you work for...thats you --> http://www.police.wa.gov.au/"
