Gigabytes of files stolen from Italian cyber police Hackers releasing 8GB of data allegedly stolen from Italy's CNAIPIC.
CNAIPIC (National Computer Crime Centre for Critical Infrastructure Protection) oversees the country's critical IT infrastructure. Anonymous claims to have gotten the 8GB data dump from a source, and alleges that the files were taken from evidence-storing servers of the CNAIPIC group.

Among the documents being leaked is information about government offices in different countries, such as the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Australia's Ministry of Defence. Data related to private firms such as Russia's Gazprom and Exxon Mobil is also being leaked.

Information about CNAIPIC staff and management is also among the 8GB dump.

The release of the data is believed to be retaliation for the arrest of several people alleged to be part of Anonymous in Italy earlier this month.

they should of make a back up of the files and put it into the external hard drive and unplug the hard drive so no one can hack the back up.

Hints of an inside job... That's gotta hurt!

Ahh, end of summer block busters, movie rental wars hitting a new fervor, corporate megalomaniacs are starting to get theirs, police making a few more arrests of BallSack cronies and Anon is starting to creep back into the headlines. How is this summer going to end before going back to school!?!

I can smell the new crayons & ditto paper ink now...
