Hacking History

A look at government investigations of hackers and their works.

Crowdfund the Hacking History

Share Embed Help

The government has hundreds of thousands of pages of documents on hackers, hacking groups and high profile hacks, some of that the government investigated and some that the government infiltrated. From the FBI, to the Secret Service and the many government agencies that’ve been hacked. These files are important pieces of history for the evolution of the cyber domain, government investigations, and hacktivism. All costs go towards the release of the files, which will be made publicly available.

Backed by Brooke Ganz, Paul Galante, Kelly Shortridge, Thomas Dullien, and 26 others.

$3,128.37 raised out of $9,500.01.
