The Best Breakdown of What Happened to HBGary

http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/news/2011/02/how-one-security-firm-tracked-anonymousand-paid-a-heavy-price.ars

Many of the documents linked or screen captured in this article i have read prior to seeing them in this so i can vouch for the authenticity of them.  Also note that HBGary and Bank of America have tried to claim that some of the documents are faked you should take into account that the other two Firms have made official apologises.  Which guarantees that the data is not faked in a bit and it is just HBGary and Bank of America going into damage control, makes you wonder what are in those Wikileaks files that has Bank of America scared so shit less.

I read about it before,however, this is more detailed and written better.

Also the first time I hear about this website. Seems to be be worth looking around further. Thanks.

Thanks for posting this. I still laugh at what happened though. The Irony is just tremendous

Wow thank you for posting this. I would never have gotten this kind of information elsewhere. I agree the irony is outstanding.
