Hackers being hunted by police worldwide eavesdropped on FBI and Scotland Yard officers investigating them.

The Internet outlaws, part of a loose coalition called Anonymous, got access to a telephone conference call between U.S. and British investigators and then posted a recording of their conversation on Friday.

âThe FBI might be curious how weâre able to continuously read their internal comm[unication]s for some time now,â boasted Anonymous in a tweet last week.

In the 16-minute conference call, FBI agents, including one from the Los Angeles field office, and officers from Scotland Yardâs Internet crimes unit discuss confidential and sensitive details of their ongoing investigation into Anonymous.
