Ask Slashdot: What if you had names and dates to leak, but no documents?

Anonymous Coward writes | about 9 months ago

An anonymous reader writes "At some point between September 2001 and June 2013, I worked for a certain organization. It's an organization that is high profile enough that at least some Slashdotters have heard of it, but it's not the usual sort of organization that you would expect to be involved in supplying software for high-volume database systems to the NSA.

But that's what we did. At the time, I didn't know what it was for. Now I know.

I know names and dates of the people involved, and have a fairly good memory of some of the technical specifications. I have no documents to back it up.

If you found out that some of your code was being used for evil, but you didn't have any documents to leak, what would you do?"

Maybe you should talk to someone in the press and see what they have to say. Presumably they wouldn't publish anything if you didn't want them to, or if you were full of it.
