Anonymous Claims It Hacked Fed, Releases Confidential Banker Information

…Recall that a week ago in retribution for the suicide of Aaron Swartz, Anonymous launched yet another “operation” this time titled “Last Resort”, as a result of which it hacked the Department of Justice and released a 1.3 GB folder of still encrypted “warhead” data containing files each named for Supreme Court Justices. And while there has been no additional disclosure on this latest operation, Anonymous may have reverted to the mothballed OpESR, by hacking none other than the Fed.As ZD reports, last night Anonymous once again hacked a .gov site, this time the Alabama Criminal Justice Information Center ACJIC. But it was not the site hacked that was material, but rather what was posted on it. What was posted is an extended data dump sheet, titled “oops we did it again” which lists some 4,606 rows of confidential credential data including titles, names, addresses, emails, phone numbers, logins, password hashes, and much more. The spreadsheet can be

found at this link.And while the data contains primarily B-grade information, with no New York bank disclosure at least on a cursory check, a more important question is where was this data sources. Anonymous itself provides a clue in a tweet from last night: Now we have your attention America: Anonymous’s Superbowl Commercial 4k banker d0x via the FED acjic.alabama.gov/documents/oops… #opLastResort #Anonymous — OpLastResort @OpLastResort February 4, 2013And judging by the level of detail, it is possible that Anonymous did indeed hack either FedWire or FedLine, although it is just as possible this was merely grabbing root data in some low security regional Fed website.

Following attacks on U.S. government websites last weekend, Anonymous seems to have made a new “Operation Last Resort” .gov website strike Sunday night.

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.” …

The U.S. Department of Justice still has egg on its face

after hacktivist group Anonymous launched ‘Operation Last Resort’ commandeering Federal websites, threatening to release government information, and demanding legal reform.

Late evening Friday, January 25, U.S. Sentencing Commission website was hacked and government files distributed by Anonymous in what the group calls “Operation Last Resort” in response to the recent, tragic suicide of hacktivist Aaron Swartz.

The feds wrestled all weekend with Anonymous to try and regain control of the website.

Anonymous had the last laugh Sunday afternoon as they whimsically transformed the .gov site into an interactive video game of “Asteroids.” …
