Anonymous posted his phone number and social security. "You have what you sought," said the statement posted by Anonymous on the website of HBGary. "We will teach you a lesson you'll never forget: do not mess with Anonymous." The group says the aim of this action is to defend Yque controls all email accounts of the company.

Barr explained to The Financial Times that the group does not have a traditional hierarchy, but that the company had succeeded in infiltrating Anonymous and find out the names and addresses of several senior officials.

The information will be unveiled this month in a press conference to be held in San Francisco.
