Military Meltdown Monday: One more Hit by Anonymous
Anonymous published data obtained from a series of hacker attacks on military contractor Booz Allen Hamilton (BAH), including 90 000 email accounts of the military. The attack is called Military Meltdown Monday.
File size published is about 130 MB and contains information about e-mail addresses and “unsalted” MD5 hashes 90 000 troops. It is not clear yet how many of these accounts are duplicates or invalid but hackers claims that they have grabbed source code, and full SQL-dump.
“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. 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.” the hackers wrote in a message on the Pastebin file storage site.
Links to the document was shared by @AnounomousIRC on twitter:
Signed at the end as usual:
We are Anonymous.
We are Legion.
We are Antisec.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
Booz Allen Hamilton representatives did not respond to e-mails and phone messages seeking comment. But on twitter a representative for the company tweeted this message from the @BoozAllen Twitter account: “As part of @BoozAllen security policy, we generally do not comment on specific threats or actions taken against our system.”
