Back then at the time OpMonsanto was in full swing with global protests around the world which were aimed right at the research company's like Rothamsted Research conduct. The leak of information was dumped as an compressed file which did not liked to be opened on windows so Linux came to the rescue, solving that little problem. after opening the compressed file i found that 1 main folder and 2 other files, 1 which discloses the vulnerability  and the other a full report of the extracted data. In the folder was 7 further folders each with anywhere between 2 to 30+ XLS files. Each folder represents a different database table. folders While researching this data i have come across confirming data and information that tests and experiments have been carried out all around the world on the follow products since the early 90's and most likely before that to. - oilseeds
