IT Blogger Rickey Gevers claims that a hacker called @ntisec has told him that Anonymous has been searching for vulnerabilities in computer networks of the Dutch government. Apparently what they found is of such a nature that even @ntisec doesn’t dare to touch it.
Thank God for Rickey Gevers who now has made public that he’s been able to access a video conferencing system of the Dutch Ministry of Defense, using an account of one of its senior executives.
Gevers describes what he has found on his blog http://rickey-g.blogspot.com/ and also makes a plea for the protection of hackers who are merely trying to point out issues that can seriously embarrass or endanger the Dutch government. He adds that having hackers be convicted for their acts, prevents them from getting any jobs in the security industry.
Gevers has been working with Dutch newspaper The Volkskrant to make this news public.
