Anonymous Hacks, Leaks E-mails, Voicemails of California Special Agent

Calling it a form of “electronic civil disobedience,” hacktivist group Anonymous took aim at a special agent from the California Department of Justice on Friday. The group spilled 38,000 e-mails containing “computer forensics techniques, investigation protocols as well as highly embarrassing personal information,” according to a press release on Pastebin.

Anonymous e-mail hackCalling it a form of “electronic civil disobedience,” hacktivist group Anonymous took aim at a special agent from the California Department of Justice on Friday. The group spilled 38,000 e-mails containing “computer forensics techniques, investigation protocols as well as highly embarrassing personal information,” according to a press release on Pastebin.

The group leaked the e-mails belonging to Fred Baclagan, a computer crimes investigator and posted them, along with his personal address and phone number to a site hidden by Tor and a torrent on The Pirate Bay.

Baclagan’s voicemails and SMS text message logs were also raided before Anonymous hacked into his Google Voice account to text and call his contacts, according to the Pastebin post.

The e-mails contain discussions spanning from cracking TrueCrypt encrypted drives to sniffing wireless traffic in mobile surveillance vehicles and how to prepare search warrants and subpoenas, according to the release.

The bulk of the e-mails however, revolve around conversations between members of the International Association of Computer Investigative Specialists (IACIS). The e-mails allegedly contain notes on how investigators build cases against criminals who commit computer crimes.

Anonymous has been keeping busy this month after kicking it off with a series of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks and in Finland, leaking 500,000 e-mail addresses to federal and parliamentary authorities.

    Messing with the kids, too, the anonymous crosses the line.

    Why doesn't "Anonymous" work on something positive like mapping the DNA code to help solve cancer and heart disease? I don't get it.

    Exposing that a branch of government is "sniffing wireless traffic in mobile surveillance" is kinda important. Theyre not here to cure death you idiots, their mission is one of social implications. To expose corruption in places that their shouldnt be. But unfortunately all you sheep dont care and wont care as long as your comfortable with the freedom of choice between kmart or walmart, burger king, mcdonalds. As long as your all fat and happy you will never question what really happened 10years ago and how we got to this point. You will probably start blaming democrats or republicans, but you are just falling yet again into another trick of distractions. You guys dont deserve anonymous. My only advise to them is to stop. You wont change the world anon, you cant. Your only putting your necks on the line for a population of sheep you do not understand the true hierarchy of the world. The cattle all made their subconscious choice to stay in thier illusions, so just let them. The only choice you have control over are the ones you make. Take care anon, all you other haters... suck it, shut up, and go buy some mcdonalds and watch a reality show, i dont care what you un informed sheep have to say. Im tired of your propaganda.

    Spelling and grammar are indicative of the above blogger's IQ.  Hey nitwlt, go look up altruism in dictionary and explain how what these Anon idiots are doing anything that will benefit anyone using constructive logic.  They are spray painting grafiti punks.  It doesnt matter karma will catch up with these Anon losers.

     Also, karma will catch up with that above blogger as well like driving into a tree thinking the tree is the road.   They should give these daft people tests before they connect to the Internet.

    Spelling and grammer indicate nothing of a person's IQ.  Also, your grammar was not much better.  Just sayin'..

    Well...they have forced numerous child pornography sites to shut down...I think that could count as benefit (amongst the other good things (and some bad) they happens to do)..?

    If Anonymous was to be left free none of this would of happenned... unfortunately, the truth reamins being that the rich get "richer" the poor "poorer" and that is what Anonymous wants to expose.  If we had true freedom Anonyous would not get attacked by government for stating their opinion and doing what they like.  They do good deeds for the people in need and that's a lot more than what we can say about the rich.

    Yeah!!! Go Anonymous.  Calif law enforcement has some really corrupt employees who illegally hack into american citizens computers, cell phones and landline phones; they illegally enter into people homes without the knowledge or consent; they recruit and use as harassment tools on innocent citizens: neighborhood watch organizations, street gangs, and faith based organizations members.  They lie, pay, bribe, or intimidate people to use their yards to set up electromagnetic pulse weapons and/or electronic microwave weapons to torment innocent citizens in their homes.  They also use Organized Gang Stalking methods to harass citizens who have committed no crimes.  These citizens have report their illegal activities, and/or witness and discussed their illegal activities.

    I hope you are able to reveal their hidden conversations that reveals their illegal activities.

    GREAT JOB - You are like a Cyber Robin Hood
