Very soon we are going to leak some SMS, voice calls, emails and classified documents for the people to see. We also know that they will hate us because we show you what they don’t want you to see”.
The hacker introducing himself stated that “Yes I am a criminal. My crime is that of curiosity. My crime of judging people by what they say and think and not what they look like. My crime is outsmarting you, something you will never forgive me for. You may stop this individual but you can’t stop us all. After all, were alike. I am a hacker and this is my manifesto”.
