Hacker Exposing Sensitive Documents o Latvian Firms Over Twitter

 

"Neo", a hacker believed to be based in Britain, is part of a group called the Fourth Awakening People´s Army. Over a period of three months the hacker group downloaded private financial data of up to 1,000 companies in Latvia.

"Neo" is now tweeting the group´s findings to state-owned Latvian TV, and has many people riveted, waiting for his next tweet. Ilze Nagla, a TV presenter for the station, said a lot of people perceive him as a modern-day Robin Hood.

The tweets include pay details of managers for a Latvian bank that received a bail-out, and promised to take a salary cut but in fact did not. Another shows state-owned companies secretly awarded bonuses while publicly asking the government for help.

  i encourage hackers of all shapes and sizes  
 
to join up and do this to Every company. ron paul´s federal reserve bill would not even have to pass if hackers would just crack the fed´s system, download all their files, and give them to the american people. how much evil sh!t are the american banks and wall street up to, how many gave themselves pay raises or have lied to us one way or another about banker bail-outs?? then think about what other government secrets could be found - the FBI, the WHO, the EPA - the CIA database, there´s gotta be a goldmine there. first East Anglia and the global warming lies and now this? what they call "illegal activity" is doing nothing but good for the common man by exposing the Real "illegal activity"! there´s a lot of sh!t they´re not telling us, and a lot of that sh!t we deserve to know. Hack The Line!!!

  picking on the weak and corrupted  
 
Latvia is very deep in the hole-- along with Greece-- and is really corrupt (like all of the Baltic countries).

Ironically, Latvia is supposed to now be the EUs hub for anti-cyberwarfare/crime after the attacks by ´Russian hackers´.

  i would say  
 
the government and the banks are picking on the weak and corrupted. at least more so than these hackers who are just exposing what they are doing.
