ACS:LAW Suffers massive Email leak to the net (SRA REPORT Included)

ACS:LAW have been dealt a catastrophic blow to their “Speculative Invoicing” Business Model.  A staggering amount of emails both internal and external have been released onto the Web for all to see.  The leak is allegedto be from a DDos carried out by 4Chan

The leak confirms lots of things that we only thought before but that is for a later post.  What is of interest here is the SRA Report and the response from Andrew Crossley.  The Report includes a breakdown of money he has taken so far.

About Hickster

I am one of the many innocent people who have been accused of file sharing by Copyright Trolls, my letter came from the now infamous ACS:LAW, but they have now been emulated by many more using the same system. Their ruse is simple, Send out letters of claim with NO Real evidence beyond an IP address that they claim was captured using a frowned upon hack of Shareaza. My REAL opinion of these companies turned when they started sending out Pornography claims, THAT is what I find most disturbing. People who HAVE to pay up without the option of having their day in Court. THAT is NOT Justice. Why can't they just go to Court? because the Lawyers, pitch the price of paying the "Compensation" at about the same rate as hiring a lawyer to fight it. Things have changed in the last 8 years though. I would advise people to read the "Speculative Invoicing Handbook Part 2", research these people yourselves, and find me at Slyck Forums, or on Twitter. Do NOT Worry, Stand Strong

    Re: The who can be held accountable issue…(Post-DDos Attack leak).

    If the exposed documents were made available by the incompetence of Crossley or the ISP the result is the same. Considering it was ACS:Law which failed to safeguard the data (ie., allowed them to be stored online in an unencrypted format – contrary to the recommendations to protect the individuals privacy) then they (ACS:Law)can still be held liable.

    It is up to the company concerned to ensure that data on individuals is stored safely at all times. This was not the case here and it could be argued that they should have chosen a provider which could, given the sensitive nature of this data, protect it from PUBLIC ACCESS at all times.

    Me thinks a series of blunders has left Crossley open to law suit/class action under the Data Protection Act.

    Is there a solicitor in the house? Can anybody confirm this?

    It is not 4chan that did this. It is a group called Anonymous. That is an important distinction to make. 4Chan is a random message board on which random people post and talk about random subjects. Anonymous sometime uses 4chan to communicate with each other and galvanize the masses.
