After publishing a large number of email databases allegedly obtained from Trend Microand partner company Sykes, the hacker known as C0mrade returns with another massive data leak. Two files, totaling around 6 gigabytes of information have been posted online, presumably obtained from a number of high-profile companies.
“Today, 6.38 GB of Mail Data for companies all over the world will be published. Amongst those affected include CitiBank (Banking, Credit Cards, Lending & Investing – Employee) – NHComputerLearning (IT, Desktop Application and Business Skills Training),” the hacker said in a statement that has since been removed from Pastebin.
Other companies named as being affected by the data leak are Serco, Marathon Technologies, and Pfizer Inc. – the world’s largest research-based pharmaceutical organization.
C0mrade has also taken this opportunity to send a message to Trend Micro after the company denied being breached.
“Believe me when I say this, if I wanted the livelihood of Trend Micro or Sykes completely destroyed, Dead, Guasto’d, Gone, or whatever you want to call it, I’d do it but I won’t for the sake of Trend Micro,” he wrote.
“I don’t want to liberate the fumes and unravel the lies, weaknesses and deceptiveness Trend Micro secretly portrays. I feel like I’m still alive, staring at my Dead Childrens’ birth remains.”
In an email he has sent to Softpedia, the hacker explains all his actions and provides further details regarding the breach that targeted Trend Micro. Here’s his complete statement:
To get love, you’ve got to give love. I’ve tried taking the ‘mature’ approach in all this but the thing is, all these infrastructures do the same pathetic thing. Duck and cover. If somebody penetrates a multi-millionaire company, of course the officials will deem it or repute the claims. It’s pathetic.
Rik Ferguson is a great guy but he too is deemed about the whole situation, why? Because it would cost them fortunes and it would assimilate their reputation as an Antivirus business. It’s comical, it really is. You can take a look for yourself, it’s clear that Sykes consulted with Trend Micro, no questions asked.
It’s also clear that some Sykes employees’ had high-ranked accounts on Trend Micro. See, when an attack of this caliber is infiltrated, you’ve got to look at it from both sides. And anybody with a equilibrium of knowledge will brand this as an intrusion on both ends (Sykes & TM) – as TM was also affected in a way.
Sykes = Homebox Backdoored, wiretapped, it’s mine. I’m just doing what I got to do man. Sometimes I harm people, sometimes I don’t. You win some and you lose some. I know there are some people who downright want me assimilated but I’m an everyday guy. I’m not doing anything bad.
Look at it this way, if I didn’t intrastate all these ‘intrusions’, standard drones, media scapegoats and news’ empires would look at it like, ‘false claims by a false guy.’ – I don’t want that. I help these companies by releasing a small portion of the data. I’ve always done that.
