Anonymous Attacks US Law Firm
Puckett & Faraj, a law firm representing a US marine who was formally charged with the murder of over 20 Iraqi civilians, but who ended up being charged with negligent dereliction of duty after the law firms intervention. The marine also managed to keep his military career alive, but has had to take a pay cut and demotion.
After the news was released regarding the change in charges and the result of the case, Anonymous set their sites on the website of Puckett & Faraj and proceed to deface the site. Along with defacing the site they also appear to have deleted most of it’s original content as well as claiming the destruction of gigabytes of personal data stored on the server, mainly e-mails.
Anonymous placed the following message on the homepage of the law firm:
“As part of our ongoing efforts to expose the corruption of the court systems and the brutality of US imperialism, we want to bring attention to USMC SSgt Frank Wuterich who along with his squad murdered dozens of unarmed civilians during the Iraqi Occupation.”
“We went ahead and fired off some shots of our own – at the servers and personal email accounts of Puckett & Faraj. We defaced their website and dumped nearly 3GB of private email messages belonging to Neal Puckett and Haytham Faraj,”.
There has been no comment yet from the US based law firm, however DPS Computing can confirm that currently the site is completely down, with a blank home page and most other content seemingly wiped from the server.
