Major embarrassment today as Anonymous intercepts a conference call between several European and American law enforcement agencies, according to something I’ve just seen on the BBC. It’s on YouTube right now if you want to hear it for yourself, click here.
It got my attention – someone breaking into a VoIP system would. But on further investigation it’s pretty obvious to me that it wasn’t an intercept at all. The clues are in the intercepted email and the start of the recording – Anonymous read an email circular inviting people to the conference call, where the access number and password were given.
This makes the authorities concerned seem even more incompetent that if they’d had their VoIP service compromised.
