The State Department Database Has Allegedly Been Hacked and Sensitive Info. Released

Anonymous has claimed it hacked a U.S. State Department Database, releasing the names, email addresses, phone numbers and more of its staffers.

According to Read Write, the hacking collective posted the information of hundreds of State Department contacts on the ZeroBin website as part of its Operation Last Resort, which is retaliation for the lawsuit against Aaron Swartz who committed suicide last month.

Web Pro News has Anonymousí statement regarding its latest claimed hack:

Our reasons for this attack are very simple. Youíve imprisoned or either censored our people. We will not tolerate things as such. You donít see us going around censoring everything that is inappropriate or we do not like. Basically, you tried to put an end to us and you got owned, thereís nothing more you can say or do. You took away Topiary, Avunit, Neuron, Pwnsauce, lolspoon, Aaron Swartz shall we go on? Heck you think this makes us weak? We are only growing stronger because of the fact that you are forcing us to revolt. When the lions roar you will hear them. And when itís feeding time youíll be our dinner.

Aaron Swartz this is for you, this is for Operation Last Resort.
The State Department has not confirmed nor denied a breach of its systems yet. But itís not like the State Department would be out of Anonymousí reach. The hacktivists recently obtained information from a database held by the Federal Reserve, which the Federal Reserve confirmed. In the past they have also successfully hacked into an FBI conference call, into the Syrian Defense Ministryís website, and the U.S. FTCís consumer protection business center, consumer.gov, and the National Consumer Protection Week websites to name a few.
