[ISN] FBI call participants 'made it easy' for Anonymous to break in

It was supposed to be a confidential conference call last week that included two of the top law enforcement agencies in the world -- the FBI and Scotland Yard -- and possibly officials from France, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands and Sweden.

The agenda was a private discussion of the ongoing investigations into the international hacker group Anonymous and related splinter groups including Lulzsec, Antisec and others.

Also on the line, listening in, was Anonymous itself.

Now, also listening in, is the rest of the world, after Anonymous posted a nearly 17-minute recording of the call on YouTube and other sites.

The FBI confirmed that the recording was authentic, stated the obvious -- that it was "illegally obtained" -- and that "a criminal investigation is under way to identify and hold accountable those responsible."
