All the information had been posted in several torrent sites for download as of December 22, 2011. 28,641 is the recorded total of users affected. This hacking team claims that calls for as far back as 2005, on prostitution, unusual sexual preferences, or infidelity, is just a small part of the material taken. This team also claims that Hemmelig can be linked to politicians, military officers, and other prominent people in well paid careers.
