I made a post last week about the illegally hacked e-mails from Britain’s climate data centre. News broke yesterday that there has now been an attempt to hack Canada’s centre. It looks like the deniers are getting desperate with a deal at Copenhagen within grasp.
“On the heels of the controversial story aboutemails and data stolen by hackers from the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, it has now been revealed that individuals posing as network technicians recently attempted to infiltrate another climate data center operated by the Government of Canada.
According to sources at the University of Victoria, two people claiming to be network computer technicians presented themselves at the headquarters of the Canadian Centre for Climate Modeling and Analysis and tried to gain access to the data servers.
When challenged by an employee, the two individuals hastily left. The timing of this attempted break-in is very suspicious given that it occurred so closely on the heels of the release of hacked emails and data from a similar facility housed at the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia in the UK.”
