Hacker group Anonymous earlier today hacked Greek Ministry of Justice Website in protest against the ACTA treaty – and now the Anonymous group posted the tweet on the micro-blogging site with a line to an intercepted FBI/Scotland Yard telephone conference call.

The conference call included two Metropolitan Police officer and four LA-based FBI agents. It wasn’t legitimate immediately that whether the call been intercepted or not, but now FBI confirmed that hackers had indeed intercepted a conference call that had been set up between it and a Scotland Yard investigation team. The call “was a criminal investigation which is under way to identify and hold accountable those responsible,” the bureau said in a statement.

The call lasts for over sixteen minutes, and it’s preceded by an automated voice asking the caller to input the conference call password. The initial link to the conference call was for an mp3 download, but it was also made available to stream on YouTube.

The supposed email has been published to the Web and includes details for logging in to the call. The email is titled “Anon-Lulz International Coordination Call”, and it was seemingly disseminated to more than forty officers in the USA, UK, Netherlands, France and Sweden.
