A group of hackers that claims to have helped Norwegian police in their investigation of Anders Behring Breivik’s recent bombing and shooting attacks that killed 77 people in and near Oslo may be associated with global hacker collective Anonymous, reports Threatpost.com.

The group, identifying itself as Noria, allegedly gained access to email accounts Breivik used. One 17-year-old member of this group, known by the moniker “Frederick,” reportedly handed over information from these accounts to the police via freelance journalist Kjetil Stormark.

“The [hacked] e-mails show some of the activity and contacts made by the perpetrator in the weeks and months leading up to the terror attacks,” wrote Stormack. “The mails also tell a tale about his private life.”

Stormack said he will not release the emails to the public for fear that doing so could compromise the police investigation of the July 22 attacks.

The Noria collective also took responsibility for assuming control of Breivik’s Twitter account and posting several tweets on his page. Among the messages posted, reported Mashable.com, were: “‘We want Anders to be forgotten. Labels like ‘monster’ or ‘maniac’ won’t do either.”

Stormack told Threatpost that the FBI wants to question Frederick about his group’s possible involvement with Anonymous, which has been associated with several disruptive, large-scale hacks worldwide.
