Now, 'Anonymous' hacktivists threaten to publish 40 GB of stolen Oz ISP's users' dataJul 26, 12:03 pm
Sydney, July 26 (ANI): Notorious hacker group Anonymous has claimed to have stolen 40GB worth of user data from an Australian internet service provider and is threatening to publish it online.The group hacking into the systems of AAPT, comes as the second stage of a campaign, protesting against proposed changes to privacy laws that would force ISPs (Internet Service Providers) to store user data and make it available to intelligence agencies for up to two years.Anonymous Australia claimed the attacks aimed to show how we should not trust ISPs to store personal information."You want to trust these ISPs with your data? When they can't even keep it secured?! If I were you, I wouldn't trust anyone but myself with my data," News.com.au quoted the Anonymous, as saying. Anonymous claimed that it plans to release a sample of the data later today, but will deliberately censor private details, because "the people were not their target"."We don't want to publish personal innocent personal details like some of the other Anons have in other operations which have lost the public's support. Our target is the (Federal) Government who think they can get away with doing something like this," the hackers said.The threat comes just days after Australian arm of the group claimed responsibility for bringing down 10 government websites and warned that it will continue the attacks on ".gov.au" sites until plans to force ISPs to store user data and make it further available to security services are shelved.AAPT remained unavailable for comment.
