Italian company Hacking Team which made software and sold it to such countries as Egypt, Sudan, Turkey, Kazakhstan, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Lebanon, and Mongolia which helped those countries spy on, suppress and most likely kill some of their people.
They, of course, denied selling to these countries, but the 400GB hack shows paid invoices in the hundreds of thousands of Euros from those very same places.
The list, and subsequent invoice for 480,000 Euro, disproves Hacking Team’s claims that they have never done business with Sudan. According to Human Rights Watch, Sudanese security forces have repeatedly and violently suppressed protestors demonstrating against the government, with more than 170 killed in 2013.
A little karma one would say? Is it really worth it to make a buck while contributing to the repression and potential death of some people?

#HackingTeam told UN it didn’t sell to Sudan. This invoice for €480,000 suggests otherwise http://t.co/oatRf8SNJS pic.twitter.com/mDD8w7aVAL
