Operation The Pirate Bay, trending on social media website Twitter under hashtag #OpTPB, claims to have leaked the usernames and passwords of Cambodian government officials from the Ministry of Public Works, the Institute of Standards, the general taxation department and the Cambodian army.
Propelled by a group calling itself “NullCrew”, the leaked caches of usernames and passwords began being circulated via Twitter on September 2.
“It is angering, whenever they won’t allow us the slightest bit of freedom of the internet, taking all we care for,” the group writes above its leaked data posted online.
“So that is why #OpTPB has come to be, they should have expected it when they did this. Cambodia, we will not stop until you come to your sences [sic].”
The so-called revenge attack is in direct response to Cambodia’s arrest of Pirate Bay founder Gottrid Svartholm Warg last week.
The username and password data did not appear to be valid.
