The hacker collective Anonymous claims to have unearthed proposals by a consortium of US security firms to attack WikiLeaks, ahead of reportedly planned disclosures about the Bank of America.

Leaked emails apparently suggest that three private security firms – HBGary Federal, Palantir Technologies and Berico Technologies – pitched a plan to undermine the whistleblowers’ site to a law firm which has represented the Bank of America.

Anonymous began releasing tens of thousands of emails sent by HBGary Federal late last week, after the loose-knit “hacktivist” group attacked the security firm’s computer systems.
