Until today it’s probably safe to say that barely anyone beyond a handful of people in security and privacy circles paid much attention to Italy’s Hacking Team, a software surveillance firm that could be described as ‘infamous’ if it weren’t so obscure.
The word ‘breach’ has changed all of that. There have probably been more stories written about a shadowy but apparently legal organization in the last 12 hours than in its entire history combined.
Techworld has covered Hacking Team on several occasions in the last three years while people were more preoccupied with other events and stories.
