Anonymous continued its ongoing attack on agricultural biotech giant
Monsanto today by publishing an outdated database of the company's
material. This is the newest in a barrage of strikes from hackers
aligned with Anonymous who operate under the "AntiSec" banner.
In a statement posted with the database on a Pastebin site, the
hacktivist group wrote it was aware that exposing the database would not
do much harm to Monsanto but warned it would continue to target the
company for what it sees as wrong.
"Your continued attack on the worlds food supply, as well as the health
of those who eat it, has earned you our full attention," wrote AntiSec.
"Your crimes against humanity are too many to name on one page."
Anonymous' battle with Monsanto began last July when the hackers
disrupted the company's Web site and then released data on about 2,500
individuals involved in the agriculture industry. According to Monsanto,
10 percent of this information was related to current and former
