    Default Operation Payback Pays Back With ACS:Law Email Leak

    4chan's Operation Payback, which launched DDoS attacks on anti-piracy companies in response to one anti-piracy company's use of similar attacks against BitTorrent websites, has resulted in a surprising haul.

    After the website of ACS:Law (one of the first law firms to sue for "pre-trial settlement", as a way to make money from anti-piracy operations) was brought down by the attack. But when the site's admin moved the site to a new server and re-opened the site, a full backup of the website was left accessible, and so it was prompt downloaded, and uploaded to The Pirate Bay (where else?).

    Company emails, passwords, and other details have all been leaked. Websites like TorrentFreak are continuing to dig through the goldmine of information that is the company emails, and have already uncovered several interesting items, from the bragging of newly gained wealth, to decisions for/against suing an elderly couple, to abusive emails to ex-wives. An absolute goldmine!

    This is really getting out of hand with these pre-trial law fines, in order demand money from people. These demand for money, are from people that can't afford to go to court or to pay a pre-trial fine. I am comparing this to a loan shark and the tactics that they use to collect monies that are actually owed.
