After a short break, Wikileaks is resuming their journey of revelations in Tech World. Their latest batch of revelations are 'The Global Intelligence Files’, which contains information taken from 5 million emails belonging to Stratfor. The announcement was made minutes ago on the Web, and it comes ahead of a press conference that Julian Assange’s organization will hold in London tomorrow (Monday) at 12:00 GMT.
When assuming that Wikileaks's words are true, the data consists of more than five million emails from Stratfor, the Texas-headquartered “global intelligence” company.

Actually Stratfor is a Subscription Based Provider Of Geopolitical Analysis as described in their website. A few weeks ago, it published a post titled ‘The Hack on Stratfor‘ that gives its side of the story, explaining that hacking of some of its data was under investigation. If Wikileaks's finding are true, those leaked emails date from between July 2004 and late December 2011. Besides many details on how an intelligence provider operates, they supposedly show Stratfor’s high level of interest in WikiLeaks itself.
The organization also claims to have secured 25 partners for this new operation, each of which will gain access to its information. However, it is notable that neither The Guardian nor The New York Times, its original partners when it first began releasing cables, are not included on the list.
We have to conclude that the global hacking group, Anonymous has also played their critical role in collecting those 'Secret' data since the following tweet was appeared on twitter.
