I have posted Climate Files Hacked about the release by anonymous ftp of the contents of hundreds of files and thousands of e-mails. Some have questioned their authenticity. I have partial verification from Real or Fake.
Steve McIntyre (Comment#23773) November 19th, 2009 at 6:08 pmYes. It is breathtaking.
I’m having trouble getting into CA right now.
I made up a pdf of the emails to help browse through them and it’s over 2000 pages. Every email that I’ve examined so far looks genuine. There are a few emails of mine that are 100% genuine.
It is really quite breathtaking.

TBR.cc reports that the Hadley Center admits that the files are real.
The director of Britain's leading Climate Research Unit, Phil Jones, has told Investigate magazine's TGIF Edition tonight that his organization has been hacked, and the data flying all over the internet appears to be genuine.WOW It is real. This is going to do a LOT of damage to the AGW Community. Big damage.
In an exclusive interview, Jones told TGIF, "It was a hacker. We were aware of this about three or four days ago that someone had hacked into our system and taken and copied loads of data files and emails."
"Have you alerted police"
"Not yet. We were not aware of what had been taken."
Jones says he was first tipped off to the security breach by colleagues at the website RealClimate.
