Anonymous Hacks FBI Contractors IRC Federal

Anonymous has just dumped files today about IRC Federal, a government-contracted IT firm, in honour of their #FuckFBIFriday 'holiday'. They've gotten access to contracts, internal documents, development schematics, logins and more.

It doesn't seem like anything particularly big was found, but they did take a peak at a proposal "for the FBI to develop a "Special Identities Modernization (SIM) Project" to "reduce terrorist and criminal activity by protecting all records associated with trusted individuals and revealing the identities of those individuals who may pose serious risk to the United States and its allies".

More pointedly, Anon addressed the workers of IRC Federal with a pseudo-mission statement/philosophy:

"If you place any value on freedom, then stop working for the oligarchy and start working against it. Stop aiding the corporations and a government which uses unethical means to corner vast amounts of wealth and proceed to flagrantly abuse their power. Together, we have the power to change this world for the better."

I think it's safe to assume they're going to keep going with these hacks then? You can find the torrent to download the leak files at The Pirate Bay. [@AnonymousIRC, The Pirate Bay]
