    Dicks. This quasi-crusade is getting a bit tiresome.

    Yep...something like:

    Scotland Yard: You hacked into our system and perverted the course of justice. Correct?
    Anon Hacker: Yes.
    Scotland Yard: That's fine then.

    I wonder how the ACTA people detect 'bugs' with all that wireless gear they use... Not that I'm implying anything 'awkward' - that would wrong!

    I listened the to the recording, seemed pretty boring actually.

    Just trying to shake up Scotland Yard and the FBI, and in the end it'll just end up biting the hackers involved in the ass.

    "Lol Anonymous" aside, this does raise a good point.
    If a bunch of nobodies can tap into a private call like this, go unnoticed for two weeks, and then release the call online, what else do you think gets caught/leaked all the time to more proficient groups with malicious intents?

    Food for thought, ahaha.

    When this was covered on the radio about 30 minutes ago it was suggested that one of the people involved in the call had recorded it, and it was either being sent to someone else or stored somewhere so others could hear it. In other words, Anonymous didn't break into a private conversation, they just stumbled across a two week old file.

    I see they had some free time between flooding people with pizza orders and sending them piles upon piles of cardboard boxes.

    Did you especially like the part where a bunch of kids are going to court for being morons?
    That was my favorite part.

    Sadly nobody will ever reply to one of Coolness' posts again.

    Because he will never make a post on this forum again.

    There's a difference between /b/ 'tards and anonymous.

    Yeah, anonymous will each eat pizzas and then collect 1000's of empty boxes to send to starving politicians! :P OK, not really, but it would be funny to get 5000 empty pizza boxes just when you had the munchies...
