ANONYMOUS Intercept FBI & Scotland Yard Conference Call
Hacking network Anonymous has released a recording of a conference call between the FBI and UK police in which they discuss efforts against hacking.
The conversation covers the tracking of Anonymous and other splinter groups, dates of planned arrests and details of evidence held by police.
Anonymous also published an email, apparently from the FBI, showing the email addresses of call participants.
The FBI confirmed the intercept and said it was hunting those responsible.
"The information was intended for law enforcement officers only and was illegally obtained. A criminal investigation is under way to identify and hold accountable those responsible," it said in a statement.
British police at Scotland Yard said they were working on a statement.
A comment on one of the Twitter accounts linked to Anonymous, AnonymousIRC, said: "The FBI might be curious how we're able to continuously read their internal comms for some time now."
Correspondents say the release of the phone call and email addresses will be highly embarrassing for the authorities.
