Phineas Fisher, the hacker that compromised the networks of Hacking Team and Gamma Group, two international surveillance software providers, has released a “how-to” video, detailing various hacking techniques.
The video is more than just a proof-of-concept learning material, and it actually presents a step-by-step process of his latest hack, the website of the Sindicat De Mossos d’Esquadra (SME), which Spain’s Catalan police union.
This is not the first time Phineas Fisher does this, just a month ago releasing aon how he broke into Hacking Team’s servers and quietly stolen all of their most sensitive data.
At the time of writing, SME’s website is down, meaning Phineas Fisher’s hack was successful. Even more, the hacker dumped all the stolen data online, but was later removed by the hosting service.
As with most of Fineas Phisher’s operations, his actions are guided by a sense of social justice. After the hacker crashed SME’s website, he also defaced their Twitter account and posted images of people that were beaten by over-zealous SME officers.
Today, it was also revealed that Phineas Fisher hacked an unnamed bank and(~$11,300) to a humanitarian project for one of Syria’s Kurdish regions.
Below is the video, and a tweet with alternative sources, if the YouTube link goes dark.
