The hacktivist group Anonymous has leaked an intercepted conversation between the FBI and Scotland Yard that transpired on January 17. The details of the call are posted online for all the world to see. Apparently two Anonymous individuals, Ryan Cleary and Jake Davis, were arrested in June 2011 for their participation in distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks against the websites of the UK's British Phonographic Industry (BPI), Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) and the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI). In September, Scotland Yard also seems to have arrested Anonymous members associated with the aliases "Kayla" and "tflow" for violations of the Computer Misuse Act. Anonymous today posted on their twitter about the FBI interception, stating, "The #FBI might be curious how we're able to continuously read their internal comms for some time now. #OpInfiltration."
