Assange Confirms BofA as Next Target

Jullian Assange confirmed on Tuesday that Bank of America will, in fact, be WikiLeak’s next target. Maybe BofA wants to start a preemptive PR blitz by hacking a few zeroes from its year-end bonuses? Assange said last year that he has 5GB from a BofA hard drive. “If its management is operating in a responsive way there will be resignations,” he predicted. But regulators could come off worse than bankers, Andrew Ross Sorkin points out. “The big surprise would be that such chicanery was documented, in black and white, and that regulators hadn’t found it yet—or worse, they had found it and did nothing about it,” he writes.
