The mink farm raider turned FBI informant, Justin Samuel, has appeared on a video promoting the latest update of the Firefox browser. According to Peter Young, who was implicated by Samuel’s testimony, “In August I wrote about the curious micro-trend of Animal Liberation Front informants going into the computer security field. Darren Thurston, who implicated several people in Animal Liberation Front and Earth Liberation Front arsons, is now a computer security consultant. Justin Samuel, on his UC-Berkeley graduate student profile, posts several articles he authored on computer security before surfacing on the Mozilla Firefox 4 team.” Samuel’s work with Firefox throws into question activist security and the credibility of Mozilla, the group that first innovated Firefox browser.
