Anonymous exposes Dutch users Credit card info

Hacker collective Anonymous has just exposed 300 names, email addresses and passwords and Credit Card Data for around 300 Dutch users.

Anonymous, the group of hackers, announced that they had broken into the servers of the defense intelligence organization Stratfor. Despite Anonymous’ belief in a vast military-industrial-government conspiracy, Stratfor is merely a think tank that researches and reports on global hot spots and events.

It is unknown whether Anonymous gained access to other, more sensitive information during the Stratfor hacks, which occurred on December 24.

The time for talk is over,” Anonymous wrote last night on Pastebin.

“It’s time to dump the full 75,000 names, addresses, CCs and md5 hashed passwords to every customer that has ever paid Stratfor. But that’s not all: we’re also dumping ~860,000 usernames, email addresses, and md5 hashed passwords for everyone who’s ever registered on Stratfor’s site… Did you notice 50,000 of these email addresses are .mil and .gov?”

One of the victims would be Dutch MP Marcial Hernandez from PVV.
