      Why no story on the Bank of America and HBGary scandel??? Its Been a week since it happened??
      Well quick update all, Anonymous caught wind of HBGary threatening they would sell info they gathered to US feds, threw an article Aaron Barr made a quote "that he knew who they were." Well he then went into their domain, and conforonted them boosting his actions. Well they got into HBGary's system, and pulled out 60,000 emails. Not only was all their information wrong, they were planning on selling it to the FBI, it could have had many innocent people charged with crimes they were never part of. Also to their amazement, they found that Bank of America was paying HBGary and two other securtiy company's to creat a plan of attack against wikileaks, due to some files that wiki may have of BoA's, proving corruption. Their game was not only to replicate what Anonymous does, DDOS attacks, amoung other hacks, they were planning on feeding fake info into the system, to try and disprove wiki leaks truthfulness. Have to love when the big dogs get bit in the butt, though it is still sad, that our leading news networks can't give us straight forward truth.

      Google HBGARY or Aaron Barr then check the news and read for yourself LuLz
