In news that will surprise nobody after the 700MB of leaked e-mails and recorded phone conversations, MediaDefender-Defenders – a group of, what we are assuming to be, hackers – has released the source code for the internal application used by the RIAA’s attack dog, MediaDefender.
The torrent file, uploaded earlier today, apparently contains the source code for the application used to poison torrent files. This poisoning process essentially makes the download useless to the end-user.
So far, this company has endured:
- A breach of security protocol when one of their employees forwarded every e-mail message to their gmail account.
- A recorded phone conversation between the attorney general of New York’s office and MediaDefender was leaked.
- The source code to the internal utility used by MediaDefender has been leaked as well.
All of this in about the span of a week. It looks like Mr. Saaf might need some Tylenol.
