The [hacking] group said in a statement: 'we have prepared a juicy release of 1.6 million accounts/records from fields such as aerospace, nanotechnology, banking, law, education, government, military, all kinds of wacky companies & corporations working for the department of defense, airlines and more.'"

    OT: A few minutes ago I was unable to leave the front page. All article links simply loaded the front page. Seems to be working by now.

    This is nothing more then Gov phishing attempt. I spent about 4 hours and went through most of the data, spotted few people I know, they have never had accounts on servers as those dumps claimed, I told them their “passwords” they had no clue what I was talking about, there was no wow how did you know! Reaction. Tried about 5000 user/password attempts none of them worked. Text strings from most of the Nasa/gov/contractors are public, you can google them. This whole crap of data looks like giant text scraping in attempt to generate legitimate looking “hacked” data. This was posted yesterday today noting works: [] And those “super hackers” xl3gi0n have even they own facebook page please who buys this?? Another one post same dump GrenXparta_Hacker Just an example Todays dump [] has following hash: MGHkLGt3ZQExBGZ2ZGt2MwD2ZmZ5LGSvZ2H5A2H0LzR= Quick search for this hash shows it showed up Sep 12 2012 on some Russian page: [] Some guy asks in Russian security forum what that hash is and someone says that it looks like SHA-256, but it misses / + so it is not. Or search for this: AGL2ZmEuL2HmAJL1AmVmMwVkLJRkAGL5BGtkZ2EyZTL= Every single one of those hashes is searchable on the net, most of them (from today) are from [] What is this? Real time search engine that generates hashes the same as in “leaked” docs claiming to be passwords? It screams FAKE. There is probably quite a few hashes\hot spots included that government is monitoring and checks who searches for what, also they will phish all the idiots that will share their work related data with “anonymous” install pin point them malware on their PC and monitor them further. At list what I would do :)
