Anti Virus Giant Trendmicro & Sykes Hacked, Hundreds of Emails Dumped By @OfficialComrade
Another major player in the anti virus game has been hacked and as a result of a proof of concept @OfficialComrade (.c0mrade) has dumped a huge load of emails. The attack which also effects Sykes, who which trendmicro appears to run support services through, has been effected as well. The attack was announced on .c0mrades twitter with the following message.

@OfficialComrade Trendmicro & Sykes – Homebox Backdoored –https://pastebin.com/EVSAXjz1 – @Cyber_War_News @BreakTheSec @TheHackersNews @Elinormills
The dump was uploaded to pastebin and contains a single link to a 158MB compressed file that was uploaded to anonfiles and it contains 28 DBX files which need a .dbx reader to view them. The emails that have been leaked range from different areas of trend and will need some time to go over. When uncompressed the total size is just under 500MB. The leak also comes with the following message which further explains that the server that was breached is still back-doored, meaning .c0mrade has access to it still.
: c0mrade : https://www.twitter.com/OfficialComrade : #FreeTriCk, #FreeMLT, #FreePhantom, #FreeJosh, #FreeJoshua, #FreeAlert, #FreeDillon Welcome, Trendmicro & Sykes is a Global Business and Antivirus suite, we’ve targeted them due to their constant lash of pseudo-security. We’ve even got a homebox backdoored. It wasn’t necessarily a matter of priorities, Trendmicro & Sykes are both successful companies and depending on how you look at it, the service does benefit the head of the Internet in all the wrong ways. Owning Trendmicro & Sykes wasn’t a priority of ours. However, if it was, they would have dug their burial site sometime ago. Sliding towards more recent events, today is June 30th, 2012 and absurdly, I’m monotonous. Why? Because Nowadays, it seems as if everybody is widely concerned with notoriety. New ‘groups’ are emerging, more ‘pigments’ are being infiltrated by demented teenagers so they could feel better about themselves, etc. My demands are written on the palm of my hands; stop. You’re a nuisance. Sliding back to the whole Trendmicro & Sykes testament, we don’t want to be compete pricks, so for the companies’ sake, we’ll take baby steps on this one. We’ll release every inch of their Email Database; Inbox, Drafts, Sent Items, Deleted Items, Attachments, and all content in all folders. You’ll need a .dbx file viewer to see the content.
