anonymousIn a bold move AntiSec (part of the Anonymous movement) has decided to release what they claim is 1.7GB of files from a branch of the US Department of Justice. Unlike many other dumps which have been on Pastebin this time they chose to use The Pirate Bay. We are guessing that it has to do with the size of the dump (a fairly hefty 1.7GB), but could also be partly due to issues that have popped up with Pastebin and their decision to remove dumps like this as quickly as possible. Then dump was been tweeted about on the twitter feed PlanetHacks who has claimed responsibility for posting the file (the name of the person tweeting about it is Joke which makes us Wonder…). According to the Twitter feed the attack was “a local file inclusion to obtain an encrypted password, and decrypted it afterwards.”
