Anonymous Slovenia Claims To Have Hacked the FBI and Posted Emails To Pastebin 152

concertina226 writes "The information, posted by user Black-Shadow of the Slovenian branch of the hacktivist group, purportedly contains FBI domain email addresses and passwords for 68 agents, although the user claims in his post that the collected log-in details are 'not all ours'. The post also includes a short profile on FBI director James Brien Comey Jr, including sensitive information such as his date of birth, his wife's name, the date they got married, his educational history and even the geographical coordinates of his residence."

    If someone wanted to kill me, they could get my home address either from the post office or the phone book.

    You are not FBI director James Brien Comey Jr, who (just a guess) probably isn't in the phone book.

    Can you really go to the post office, give a name, and get an address?

    I'm sorry, but those are still public records in the U.S. There are multiple sources for them:

    1. Local newspaper archives. Typically local newspapers publish all recorded births and deaths.

    2. Local public record offices. All across U.S., both birth and death certificates are public records and everyone can access them.

    3. Local real estate records. Almost everywhere you can look up basic property records for free - the name of the owner, the address, the taxes due. To get details you may need to pay, but that's just administrative fee. In better counties, all of the records are freely available online, including GIS data.

    I am in fact in favor of those remaining public no matter what. It prevents certain forms of corruption.

    No, USPS isn't really in the business of looking people up, lol.

    I have personally gone to the post office, given them a name, and got the address. There was a small fee, and I had to show an ID and sign a form. It was over ten years ago, so maybe they don't do it anymore, or maybe you are simply wrong.

10.0 times 0.1 is hardly ever 1.0.
