My good friend Richard Adhikari has written yesterday a very good article about this incident. Read it here: Hacking Team’s Dingy Laundry Hung Out Online Here is where I get quoted as founder of Sorin Mustaca IT Security Consulting: A Black Bag Job? “It could be that some government agency who’s a customer of Hacking Team decided to discredit them and force them to close their doors,” said Sorin Mustaca, founder of Sorin Mustaca IT Security Consulting. “These special customers don’t like to leave traces of their acquisitions,” he told the E-Commerce Times. Here are additional comments Apparently, on Sunday night many people managed to download the content from bittorrent (before it was taken down). The reports speak of confirmations of selling intrusion tools to various regimes and contract documents with some of their customers. Here is the list of countries: Please enjoy this list of @hackingteam's customers from their Wiki. Kazahkstan! Sudan! Russia!

Eduard Snowden already warned of this, so this can be seen as a cross verification with other sources and not as a brand new piece of news….
