Britam Defence LEAK

PART 1: 

britam defence hacked, confidential documents leaked, site offline

By  on 
A British defence company has been breached and as a result a heap of documents have been published online and now the site has gone offline.
The attack is on britam defence ( and  has been claimed by a hacker using the handle JAsIrX who uploaded the leaked information to various file sharing websites and released it via a single pastebin post with the a message about the release (see bottom).
The documents come in 6 parts and total over 423MB compress zip files and inside the compress files appears to be a common layout of three main folders named !!Syria, Iran and Iraq.
Inside these appear to be documents like passports, incident reports about drunk employees which are labelled private and confidential as well.
A quick look into the files shows shocking plans for chemical warfare attacks where they have planned to lure victims to kill zones. The file can be found in the Iran folder under OPLAN (Ruhayyat) 1433H-1.doc.
Move from their garrisons to occupy AA at Grid (1556) (IAW Movement Order).
On order defend in the designated sector from Grid (378477) to Grid (275408).
Facilitate the passage of the Screening Force through PP (1, 2).
Fix Enemy forces and lure them to the Killing Zones.
On order conduct Counter Attack.
Support Reserves when they conduct deep operations.
Full Gallery of documents in leak below:

The leaked data also contains usernames and administration login credentials which appear to be stored in clear text which is a real big worry for a defence company.
Also as noted below the British defence company was using a Singapore based host for its server, its any wonder why such companys do this when its national security they handle.
Message from the release:
I’m JAsIrX and I will share with you some documents downloaded after hacking Britam Defence server.
Its website is located on the Malaysian server. I found bugs in the website with same ip and uploaded web-shell through this site.
Then I hacked plesk parallels control panel and gained access to Britam Defence mail accounts and website directory.
Leaked documents:
- Contracts copies with signatures
- Private email correspondence
- Personnel data, etc.
Britam Defence is British private military company, operates mainly in the Middle East. It killed Arabs in Iraq and plans to invade in Iran and Syria.
Look through leaked documents carefully. CW means chemical weapon, g-shell is short for a gas shell I guess.
Help to distribute this info and let other people know about the threats.
Thank all
If i get more time i will release a report into the contents of this leak.


A Look into the Britam Defence Data Leak Files

Its also clear that Britam does not practice data security very well as they have been storing user credentials, network information in unencrypted formats.

Email between David Goulding who is the Business Development Director and Philip regarding a new offer about an operation in syria.

We’ve got a new offer. It’s about Syria again. Qataris propose an attractive deal and swear that the idea is approved by Washington.
We’ll have to deliver a CW to Homs, a Soviet origin g-shell from Libya similar to those that Assad should have.
They want us to deploy our Ukrainian personnel that should speak Russian and make a video record.
Frankly, I don’t think it’s a good idea but the sums proposed are enormous. Your opinion?
Kind regards

This update is gathered from "the Syrian Commando" Blog at

It was pointed out to me in a tweet that there were in fact TWO emails posted in the BritAm leak. One on “Iranian issue”. A quick inspect reveals fraud.
Within the Iranian issue email the header contains the following:
with ESMTP id nWRHL2NRVdAP for ;;
Thu, 16 Oct 2012 23:57:18 +0800 (SGT)
Received: from ( [])
by (Postfix) with ESMTP id 27D5F523A0E
for ;; Thu, 16 Oct 2012 23:57:18 +0800 (SGT)
And within the Syrian email, the header contained the following:
with ESMTP id nWRHL2NRVdAP for ;;
Mon, 24 Dec 2012 23:57:18 +0800 (SGT)
Received: from ( [])
by (Postfix) with ESMTP id 27D5F523A0E
for ;; Mon, 24 Dec 2012 23:57:18 +0800 (SGT)
The date is different, as one would expect but the TIME is exactly the same. This means that one or both of these emails has been edited from the email database. The forgery is clear, it’s time to burn this Trojan horse. Whoever made this leak purposely left this sign of fraud behind, in order to later point it out and use it as a platform to attack ALL leaks unfavourable to the US and to try and claim that a chemical weapon attack cannot possibly be a false flag.
Nice try.
UPDATE 1: Note that in both emails the date is modified throughout, but the time is left intact. Such attention to detail implies its not just a fraud, but a deliberate fraud. This turns the magic on the magician: why create this two level false flag when there is no intention to carry out a chemical weapon false flag? This highly sophisticated cyber warfare operation should indicate the stakes at play: what is the prize behind the sacrifice of a mercenary organisation like BritAm?
