    Malware, spyware and getting hacked

    Discussion in 'Research' started by Aaron DC, Jul 6, 2015.

    There's a little story happening now on twitter / Internet, where an Italian company that sells malware to ... well, pretty much anyone willing to pay -- from Australian Federal Police through to Ethiopia -- has been hacked. The Ethiopians were using the software to spy on journalists, who are an endangered species in that country.

    The twitter account which is no longer hacked: https://twitter.com/hackingteam
    The client list including renewal date info:

    Just thought anyone writing espionage / tech styled fiction might enjoy the real life drama unfolding :D
