- Learn to Hack from Phineas Fisher, the Man Who Pwned the Hacking Team. From Softpedia. Phineas Fisher, the hacker who compromised the networks of Hacking Team and Gamma Group, two international surveillance software providers, has released a “how-to” video, detailing various hacking techniques. The video is more than just proof-of-concept learning material, and it actually presents a step-by-step process of his latest hack, the website of the Sindicat De Mossos d’Esquadra (SME), which is Spain’s Catalan police union. This is not the first time Phineas Fisher does this, as just a month ago he released a detailed guide on how he broke into Hacking Team’s servers and quietly stole all of their most sensitive data. At the time of writing, SME’s website is down, meaning Phineas Fisher’s hack was successful. Even more, the hacker dumped all the stolen data online but was later removed by the hosting service.
