The conversation covered updates to on-going court cases, the recent arrest of a 15-year-old for hacking his school website, and even touched on cheese and the merits of Sheffield.
One officer appears to refer to the city as a “khazi” - slang for toilet – and tells an American colleague: “You’ve missed nothing, it’s not exactly a jewel in England’s crown.”
They seem to think the Bullring shopping centre in Birmingham is actually in Sheffield and also refer to a colleague as an “old school detective but mad as a box of frogs”.
The Anonymous hacker managed to listen in to the call after accessing an FBI email which gave details of the intended call. The email was also posted online.
Writing on the Twitter account, AnonymousIRC, one hacker said: “The FBI might be curious how we’re able to continuously read their internal comms for some time now.”
