The Anonymous collective have launched a WikiLeaks-like site called Par:AnoIA (Potentially Alarming Research: Anonymous Intelligence Agency). They won't gather the data themselves but will take submissions.
The project was created as a response to a year of Anonymous releases where the announcement of document dumps generated plenty of media, but the documents’ content got little coverage.
“The reason no one cares about these leaks, as a general rule of thumb, is that they can’t do anything with [them],” said a Paranoia anon volunteering on document processing for the project in an online chat with Wired. “Basically, [we're] making it accessible to anyone that wants to do something with it, in a proper usable format.”
Currently Paranoia is hosting Austrian Scientology emails, an anonymous arrest tracker, a browsable archive of the HBGary mails, a proxy for the Pirate Bay (to bypass filters) and a pirated copy of Parmy Olson’s book, We Are Anonymous. They’ve just gotten their first sizable leak from an Anonymous breach of Innodata, an outsourcing company that handles document processing and IT. “Anonymous got into Innodata, and Paranoia is publishing (the data),” said one of the project’s founding anons.
The Paranoia anons say they aren’t worried about law enforcement or any of the many problems that have plagued WikiLeaks, from a court-ordered takedown over corporate documents to a potential prosecution under U.S. espionage laws.
“So far we publish images and texts… which is absolutely legal. Unless someone says it isn’t. We are behind Cloudflare and the servers and domains are hosted in a way that they are DMCA-proof. We have experience in doing that,” said an anon.
