The FBI has issued a statement regarding Anonymous Hackers. A breach in the government security system is being examined and these highly-skilled hackers are responsible for the misdemeanor.

News has become public concerning an activist group of hackers known as Anonymous breaking and entering into vital governmental files. Various agencies of the United States have had their computers hacked and seriously important stuff has been stolen by these nefarious elements. The hacking had been going on for a year. A fatal flaw in Adobe System’s software led to a series of attempts which were successful. 

The FBI meanwhile has been late in its response. This is a problem that must be solved and fast. The data that got smuggled included crucial information on over 104,000 individuals which included workers and their family members of the Department of Energy. A further 20,000 bank account numbers were given away thanks to the infiltration too. 

There is a great deal of concern among government employees regarding this break in that may compromise the administrative functions of the nation. The attacks have been linked to the Lauri Love case. She was a top UK spy who had been previously indicted on the charges of hacking into several department systems online. 

On the other hand, Adobe spokespersons have shown skepticism at there being any flaw in their system. They say that it was probably due to the agencies not utilizing the latest security patches. As for the Anonymous group, it is not likely to stop its infernal activities any time soon. In fact, its recent actions were in response to the campaign that resulted in the harassment of hackers.
