Anonymous hackers claim to have obtained 2.6 GB of emails from Puckett Faraj, a law firm that represents Frank Wuterich, who is accused of leading the group of Marines in Haditha.
Wuterich recently agreed in a plea deal that his rank will be reduced from staff sergeant to private as a result of the alleged war crime. Prosecutors agreed to drop all 13 charges against Wuterich, which could have resulted in a life-in-prison sentence, in return. Anonymous noted that it will be posting “detailed records, transcripts, testimony, trial evidence, and legal defense donation records” on Pirate Bay.
The U.S. Naval Institute has reacted with a blog post entitled "Wargame Your Information". The advice to personnel is to take extra precaution to keep information safe as "cyber spies, vandals, and merry pranksters are going to always test."
