Anonymous Plans To Publish Security Firm’s Emails

The hacktivist group known as AntiSec, which includes members from the notorious group Anonymous, has vowed to release 2.7 million confidential emails it stole from U.S. security firm Stratfor.

The group said it intends to further embarrass the intelligence company it hacked over Christmas by publishing the communications.

AntiSec posted the credit card numbers, passwords, and home addresses of 100,000 of Stratfor’s clients on Monday, including Apple, the U.S. Army and Air Force, MSNBC, and the Miami Police Department.

Anonymous posted five receipts of donations it had made to charities using the stolen credit cards.

Stratfor Chief Executive George Friedman posted on Facebook that the company will offer identity theft protection and monitoring services to affected subscribers.

A spokesman for Stratfor said that the company had reported the intrusion to law enforcement and was working with them on the investigation. >>Red Orbit
