Financial Times: "Anonymous," the group of hacktivists who attacked MasterCard, PayPal and others after they stopped support for WikiLeaks, has successfully attacked a prominent security expert. The group hacked into the personal accounts of Aaron Barr, head of HBGary Federal, a security firm that contracts with the U.S. government. They accessed and distributed thousands of his personal e-mail messages and other documents.

Barr angered the group when he said that he could identify most of their leaders.
