Bank of America Emails Released by Anonymous

Fox News, PC World, and Forbes all report that Anonymous, the hacker group, has released emails from Balboa Insurance. Bank of America acquired Balboa as part of its Countrywide acquisition. Anonymous claims the emails prove that Balboa purposefully altered documents so that the information did not match the bank’s loan information. Altering this information would have allowed the bank to increase foreclosures.
It is unclear if this is the information that Wikileaks claimed would be damaging to an American bank.
