    Britain's intelligence agency has a hacker division that has been using sex and "dirty tricks" for seeking out enemies of the state, acccording to documents leaked by National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden.

    The Government Communications Headquarters, the British government's version of the NSA, employs the Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group to fight hactivist groups like Anonymous.

    Earlier this week, Snowden documents revealed that the GCHQ took a page out of the hacker group's playbook when it launched a distributed denial of service attack on Anonymous.
