Court documents released after the stunning roundup of five alleged
members of Anonymous and LulzSec yesterday shed light on one of the
groups' more notable hacking escapades.
A 19-year-old Irish man is accused of hacking two Gmail accounts
belonging to Irish police officers and obtaining dial-in details for a
January conference call between members of the US Federal Bureau of
Investigation and the UK's Serious Organized Crime Agency (SOCA).
A recording of the call was released on YouTube on February 3,
embarrassing investigators on both sides of the Atlantic.
Donncha O'Cearrbhail of Birr, Ireland, is accused of recording the call
and reaching out to a prominent Anonymous member for help in publicising
it. But the Anonymous member was secretly working for the FBI, leading
to O'Cearrbhail's arrest.
