Hackers Anonymous Release Details Of 90,000 US Military Personnel

Hacker collective anonymous has released a massive batch of military data it stole from government contractor Booz Allen Hamilton.

The data, released as a part of ‘Military Meltdown Monday’ under its Anti-Sec campaign, contains emails and passwords of 90,000 US military employees.

The 190MB file containing the data was uploaded on torrent website The Pirate Bay, and contains log-in credentials belonging to the employees of the Department of Homeland Security, the Marine Corps, US CENTCOM, SOCOM and the Airforce.

Anonymous said that the security on Booz Allen Hamilton’s server was next to nothing and they even included an SQL dump of their source code.

"We infiltrated a server on their network that basically had no security measures in place. We were able to run our own application, which turned out to be a shell and began plundering some booty,” the group said in a note.

“Most shiny is probably a list of roughly 90,000 military emails and password hashes (md5, non-salted of course!). We also added the complete sqldump, compressed ~50mb, for a good measure," they added.

The Anti-Sec campaign is being run by Anonymous and members of the disbanded hacker group LulzSec, which hacked the US Senate and the CIA.
