Planned Parenthood Hacked, Says Hacker Group

Updated 7:25pm


The women's health and abortion provider said Monday it has reported the crime to the Department of Justice and the FBI.

"Extremists who oppose Planned Parenthood's mission and services have launched an attack on our information systems, and have called on the world's most sophisticated hackers to assist them in breaching our systems and threatening the privacy and safety of our staff members," said Planned Parenthood Executive Vice President Dawn Laguens Monday afternoon.

Yes, yes, hacking is a crime. Very bad. Don't do. Much punish.

And this feeds the laughable victim mentality of these genocidal vampires.

And yet . . . my sympathy meter is pinging a big fat zero. Let's see those emails.

Original Post

Pro-life hackers? Pro-life hacktivists? Tomato, tomato.

One of the hackers, who goes by the pseudonym “E,” told the Daily Dot that the cyberattack was politically motivated.

“Trying to mold an atrocious monstrosity into socially acceptable behaviors is repulsive,” said E. “Obviously what [Planned Parenthood] does is a very ominous practice. It'll be interesting to see what surfaces when [Planned Parenthood] is stripped naked and exposed to the public.”

Planned Parenthood Chief Information Officer Tom Subak told the Daily Dot on Sunday night that the organization was previously unaware of a breach in their systems.

In a statement, Planned Parenthood says it is investigating the claim.

The hacker group 3301 hasn't released any stolen data yet, but they say they got the Planned Parenthood website databases, names and email addresses of employees, and internal emails.

This part sounds like typical juvenile internet warrior bravado, but take it how you will:

The hackers say they attempted to deface Planned Parenthood's site or have it redirect to the hacker group's Twitter account. However, they were unable to accomplish this goal because, according to E, Planned Parenthood's website “backend is so terribly configured,” which thwarted their attempts to gain further administration access to the site.

Defacing someone's webpage is the internet equivalent of having your pants pulled down in a public place. Embarrassing, but fixable. I'm more interested in these internal emails, which no doubt contain plenty of juicy details.

Think about it. Put some wine in them and the Planned Parenthood people were just fine discussing crushed baby parts over foie gras and brioche toast. One can only imagine the horrible things they say to each other in the comfort of their own emails.

A couple of the broadcast nets gave Planned Parenthood's very own Cruella de Vil an opportunity to defend the organization's enthusiastic organ trafficking efforts this weekend. Mollie Hemingway recaps the ABC appearance in case you missed that horror show.
