The hacking collective Anonymous managed to listen in on a conference call between the FBI and Scotland Yard as the law enforcement officers were discussing anti-hacking operations, the FBI admitted today.
Calling it "OpInfiltration," Anonymous members were allegedly able to steal a personal email which included instructions for dialing into the Jan. 17 private call. Today the group published a recording of the call -- which discussed the timing of planned arrests and identities of suspected hackers -- as well as the email addresses of the officials on it.
In the call, a Scotland Yard official discusses a few suspected hackers in particular, including a 15-year-old that the official calls "an idiot" and another thats "just a pain in the bum."
"Listen along, and laugh out loud at the law enforcement agents bumbling away," a description posted along with the recording said.
"The FBI might be curious how were able to continuously read their internal comms [communications] for some time now," an Anonymous spokesperson bragged on Twitter.
An FBI official acknowledged the infiltration, saying in a statement, "The information was intended for law enforcement officers only and was illegally obtained."
"A criminal investigation is underway to identify and hold accountable those responsible," the statement said.
An official with Scotland Yard also confirmed the recording, but declined to comment further.
