Thousands of emails from Bank of America published on the Internet

Internet claiming the label of the informal group of activists Anonymous published on Monday, several thousands of confidential emails from Bank of America on a dedicated website. Quickly overwhelmed with requests, the site is currently unavailable, but copies of some emails circulating on file-sharing sites.

Some of the emails exchanged between employees of Bank of America and employees of a subsidiary that specializes in loan guarantees, Balboa, suggest that manipulation took place in the computer tool used by Bank of America to manage loans and insurance. According to Anonymous, e-mails contain evidence that Bank of America improperly seized houses in the heart of the economic crisis of 2008, an accusation by consumer associations in the United States.

A spokesman for the bank said Monday that these emails were not related to seizures of homes and were simple paperwork. End of 2010, the site Wikileaks announced in December that it would publish documents related to Bank of America, which could be the same. Due to legal troubles of Mr.

Assange and various technical and organizational issues, publications Wikileaks have temporarily ceased.
