90K Military E-mail Addresses Said to Be PilferedAnonymous Claims Hack of Pentagon Contractor Booz Allen Hamilton
"We infiltrated a server on their network that basically had no security measures in place," according to the hackers' posting on the website thepiratebay.org. "We were able to run our own application, which turned out to be a shell and began plundering some booty."
Booz Allen didn't directly respond to the breach allegations. The Booz Allen Twitter account stated: "Part of @BoozAllen security policy, we generally do not comment on specific threats or actions taken against our systems."
Anonymous said it targeted Booz Allen because the firm was developing software for what the hacker group called a military project to manipulate social networks to influence public opinion.
In a faux invoice for auditing services, Anonymous in its posting said it spent four man-hours hacking into the Booz Allen network.
