Hackers operating under the name Anonymous said Monday that they infiltrated a server on Booz Allen Hamilton’s network, swiping some 90,000 military email addresses.
“We infiltrated a server on their network that basically had no security
measures in place,” the group posted on the website PirateBay. “We were able to run our own application, which turned out to be a shell.”
Titled “Military Meltdown Monday,” the post said the group gained access to about 90,000 military emails and password hashes and alluded to having other sensitive information.
On its Twitter account, Booz Allen Hamilton said as part of the company’s security policy, “we generally do not comment on specific threats or actions taken against our systems.”
