Anonymous Exposes data of 10,000 Civic Democrats from Czech

Last week, Hackers posted on the internet the private data of Czech Prime Minister Petr Necas, including the numbers of his three mobile telephones, after a series of cyber attacks on government web sites.

Hacker groups Anonymous and TrollSec claimed responsibility for the cyber attacks and for posting private data of the prime minister, saying they were protesting the Czech authorities, who are ignoring public sentiment and want to ratify the controversial agreement.

The cyber attacks on the Czech government web sites, including on the Cabinet's website, come in the wake of worldwide protests against the ratification of the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA).

Today Anonymous Hackers claim to released personal details about members of the largest of the three parties in the ruling Czech coalition, the Civic Democrats (ODS).

Details including mobile telephone numbers and personal ID card numbers were made public made available for download in Microsoft excel format from the site ods.6te.net.

In the message the hackers says they decided to take the action because the ODS has attempted to criminalize the Anonymous activists using judicial power (with which, they claim, the party has suspicious ties to and has robbed of its independence).
