Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Anonymous leaks 1.7 GB of Justice Dept data

The Anonymous hacker group posted 1.7 gigabytes of data on The Pirate Bay. The group says it obtained by hacking into the Justice Department Statistics website. The department also acknowledged that its web server had been breached.

A message accompanying the torrent uploaded by user AnonymousLeaks on The Pirate Bay states that the intention of the action is to “end the corruption that exists, and to truly make those who are being oppressed free.”

"Today we are releasing 1.7GB of data that used to belong to the United States Bureau of Justice, until now,” the statement says “Within the booty you may find lots of shiny things such as internal emails, and the entire database dump.”

The Anonymous message also stated that the Justice Department tried to shut down its Statistics website, but that it was already too late, as the hackers had managed to get the data they wanted.

A spokesperson for the Department of Justice admitted that one or more unauthorized users gained access to a server operating the department’s Bureau of Justice Statistics website, Reuters reports.

The Justice Department also released a statement to AFP, saying it was looking into the unauthorized access of one of its website servers.

It remains to be seen whether the data contains any incriminating evidence against the US government, as Justice Department Statistics' website primarily contains criminal statistics data.

The leak appears to be part of a new movement created by Anonymous, dubbed “Monday Mail Mayhem”, or MMM for short, akin to F*ck FBI Friday.

Anonymous DDoS-attacked the Justice Department website earlier this year in response to the shutdown of file-sharing site Megaupload.
