Hacking group LulzSec went out of the scene, but another collective of hackers, Anonymous, continues with its job. The hacking group has released a set of files containing documents and links to security and hacking resources on the internet. The released files also include various hacking and counter hacking tools along with the addresses of FBI bureaus in the U.S.

The size of the released file is 625 MB, and it seems to have come from the U.S. FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) Counter Terrorism Defence Initiative training program. Although the hackers linked to the CDI SENTINAL program page, they didn’t mention the exact source of the file, ITProPortal reported.
