'Anonymous' Hackers Claim to Breach NATO Security
Published July 21, 2011
A mesage posted on a Twitter feed affiliated with the Anonymous hacking
collective claims that the group hacked into a NATRO server.
LONDON - NATO is looking into claims that hackers have breached its security
and accessed scads of material so confidential the hacker group itself
deemed it "irresponsible" to publish them all, despite a series of
international raids Tuesday designed to corral the hacking activity.
"NATO is aware that hacker group released what it claims to be NATO
classified documents on the internet," a NATO spokseman said in a statement.
"NATO security experts are investigating these claims. We strongly condemn
any leak of classified documents which could potentially endanger the
security of NATO allies, armed forces and citizens."
The group, which goes by the name "Anonymous," claimed to be sitting on
about 1 gigabyte of data. The hackers broadcast a link to a PDF file
Thursday via Twitter, showing what appeared to be a document headed "NATO
The group's actions have become intolerable, Steven Chabinsky, deputy
assistant FBI director, said in an interview with NPR.
"We want to send a message that chaos on the Internet is unacceptable,"
Chabinsky said. "[Even if] hackers can be believed to have social causes,
it's entirely unacceptable to break into websites and commit unlawful acts."
The group followed up with a statement to the FBI and Chabinsky, with a list
of things it deems unacceptable: "Governments lying to their citizens and
inducing fear and terror to keep them in control ... corporations aiding and
conspiring with said governments ... lobby conglomerates who only follow
their agenda to push the profits higher."
The group claimed that a second link it tweeted later linked to a second
restricted NATO document on "outsourcing CIS in Kosovo (2008)."
Sixteen suspected members of "Anonymous" were arrested Tuesday in states
across the country, from California to New York, in a federal raid on the
notorious hacking group.
Anonymous is a loosely organized group of hackers sympathetic to WikiLeaks.
It has claimed responsibility for attacks against corporate and government
The group also claims credit for disrupting the websites of Visa and
MasterCard in December, when the credit card companies stopped processing
donations to WikiLeaks and its founder, Julian Assange.
The group's message was clear: In spite of the string of recent arrests, the
"hactivism" will continue.
"We are not scared any more. Your threats to arrest us are meaningless to us
as you cannot arrest an idea."
