Anonymous claims new Monsanto-related hack - SC Magazine US

The Anonymous hacktivist group claims it is responsible for putting a Washington, D.C. public relations firm out of business.

But a former executive at the now-defunct company, known as The Bivings Group, denies the allegations.

Anonymous defaced the firm's website and hacked into a database, spilling the contents, including hundreds of corporate emails, the collective said in a Pastebin document, posted Monday. Anonymous targeted The Bivings Group as part of "Operation End Monsanto," a campaign designed to go after the multinational maker of genetically engineered seeds and growth hormones.

(Anonymous objects to Monsanto's business practices, some of which were documented in this 2008 Vanity Fair article.)
