As promised, Anonymous has sought to embarrass the FBI with a network attack, this time going after defense contractor ManTech International.
“Hacktivist” collective Anonymous claims to have “owned” the defense contractor ManTech International and promised to release the stolen information within 24 hours, according to a post on Twitter that appeared shortly after midnight on July 29.
Some documents have already been posted as “teasers,” including a resume of an individual with significant military and law enforcement background and a statement of work memo for NATO Communication & Information Systems Services Agency. About 500MB of files are expected to be released.
This latest attack is in apparent retribution for the July 20 arrests of individuals who are accused of participating in Anonymous group hacking attacks.
