Just a little while ago, Anonymous, as part of the AntiSec movement, exposed content from several government servers. Now, a torrent from the same group on ThePirateBay is exposing Viacom and Universal Music.
The statement from anonymous says:
This is the first official #antisec release and within this archive you will find:
*) Zimbabwean government dumps
*) Mosman Municipal Council (mosman.nsw.gov.au) dump
*) Universal Music Group Partners dump 1 & 2 containing umusic.com’s user:passwords
and other data
*) Viacom dump containing internal mapping of Viacom and its servers
*) Assorted Brazillian Government dumps and passwords
Greetings fellow Anons, Swashbuckers and Lizards.
It has been a week since the LulzBoat lowered the LulzSec flag, she now proudly flies under the #AntiSec colors. Since this day, the movement is organized by a flotilla of independent but allied vessels.
In this short time, the friendly vessels were able to capture copious amounts of booty, all claimed in the name of #AntiSec. Make no mistake: While the LulzBoat is still sailing with us (albeit not with the LulzSec flag), the objective of #AntiSec is different. Despite being still driven by Lulz and therefore also providing them, the mission has become larger than us. #AntiSec is more than Lulz and more than even Anonymous: It is our true belief that this movement has the capability to change the world. And should that fail, we will at least rock the world.
Thus, the introductory #AntiSec release (dubbed AntiSec-001) does not contain the type of data that a typical Lulz Lizard can just abuse mindlessly. Instead, we provide material that is primarily against corrupt Governments (in our world this is all Governments) and corrupt companies. And keep in mind: #AntiSec vessels have a very large cache of valuable goods aboard; the crews are currently working hard to sort the loot in a way that even the lousy media sailboats are able to just grab it and sail away for the horizon. You will hear from us very soon.
And always remember: Let it flow and it will flow back to you.
The comprehensive torrent is nearly 380MB. No doubt the affected companies won’t be happy they were the latest to be hacked.
