The hacker collective Anonymous is in the news again today for leaking the credentials of 4,000 US bank executives. Hackers claim that the leak, part of an ongoing operation they've dubbed "Operation Last Resort," is in retaliation for "overzealous prosecution" in the case of late internet activist and Reddit co-founder Aaron Swartz.
As ZDNet reports:
"A spreadsheet has been published on a .gov website allegedly
containing login information and credentials, IP addresses, and contact
information of American bank executives."
"If true, it could be that Anonymous has released banker information
that could be connected to Federal Reserve computers, including contact
information and cell phone numbers for U.S. bank Presidents, Vice
Presidents, COO's Branch Managers, VP's and more."
"The website used in this attack belongs to the Alabama Criminal Justice Information Center (ACJIC). The page extension URL is titled, "oops-we-did-it-again.""
