French Anti-P2p Group Hacker Unlikley To Face Prosecution
« on: May 23, 2011, 03:08:48 pm »
After a recent breach of security at Trident Media Guard (a French Anti p2p2 organisation) it seems as though Trident are not looking to take the matter further, this is of course very strange but thankfully Torrentfreak seem to have some inside info on why this may be.

Last Saturday, we began reporting on a security breach at French anti-piracy company Trident Media Guard (TMG). The company had been entrusted by the French government to carry out monitoring of file-sharing networks in pursuit of their nationwide anti-piracy program.
Blogger and security researcher Olivier Laurelli, aka Bluetouff, told us that a TMG virtual machine had been leaking data, including security tools and, according to a later report by news resource Numerama, IP-addresses of French citizens.
"TMG first said to the press it was an unprotected test server with no confidential data, and that there was no hack" stated Bluetouff continuing,
"as predicted, TMG had announced that they won’t sue after all, unless they find evidence of “a formal intrusion”, something which presumably won’t be possible on a server they left deliberately open."

It a clear case of Trident not wanting to rock the boat too much in case folks or the govt start asking why this server was left open, but whats the real story on whether anyones private data was compromised ?  We shall never know it seems but this is a concerning aspect of this affair that the French data protection agency should look into.
