Sources have advised iTWire that the long-awaited and much-promised AAPT business customer database will be released late this evening.
This is the file that we wrote about earlier today when exposing the direct link between the recent Queensland Government website defacements and the AAPT data file loss. This release is part of a long-running attack on the Federal Government's plans for web data retention by ISPs for at least two years.
For some days now, the hacktivist group Anonymous has been promising the release of the data, initially on Wednesday, but seemingly now it will be late tonight (Friday).
This file, reported to be between 2.5GB and 40GB (depending on who you believe) will make for some interesting reading.
iTWire is advised that the primary reason for the delay was the need to be sure that innocent third parties (customers of AAPT in this instance) were not harmed by the release of the data.
More as it happens.
