OpMonsanto, the operation launched by Anonymous hackers against the world renowned agricultural biotechnology corporation, continues. The hacktivists managed to leak an email database which they admitted was outdated, the purpose of the breach being to show the organization that it’s not off the hook yet.
A Pastehtml post reveals a massive database comprising email messages sent by the company’s employees during 2000 and 2001.
“We are aware that posting this outdated database will do little to harm you,” Anonymous wrote.
“Rest assured, we will continue to dox your employees and executives, continue to knock down your websites, continue to fry your mail servers, continue to be in your systems, and continue to expose your [expletive].”
In July 2011, the hacktivists launched a distributed denial-of-service (DDOS) attack against Monsanto’s websites that lasted for 2 days. At the time, the company’s director of corporate affairs, Tom Helscher, admitted that their infrastructure was hit by a “cyber group.”
Since then, Anonymous also took credit for the complete termination of Bivings Corp, a company suspected of having connections with Monsanto and other organizations appointed as being corrupt.
Now, the hackers continue their operation against Monsanto which they blame for putting farmers out of business.
“Your continued attack on the worlds food supply, as well as the health of those who eat it, has earned you our full attention.
“Your crimes against humanity are too many to name on one page, you have put over 9000 small-time farmers out of business by using your enourmous legal team to bury them with your malicious patent lawsuits,” reads the message posted by Anonymous.
“You have continually introduced harmful, even deadly products into our food supply without warning, without care, all for your own profit.“
