Hackers grab Goldman CEO’s personal data – CBS News

leave a comment »

(CNET)  Hackers today released personal information for Goldman Sachs Chief Executive Officer Lloyd Blankfein.

The document, posted to the Pastebin Web site, includes the CEO’s age, recent addresses, details of litigation he has been involved in, as well as registration information for businesses, but no sensitive information such as financial data.

Goldman Sachs representatives did not immediately respond to a call seeking comment.

A group using the handle “CabinCr3w” took credit for the data dump, but did not say why Blankfein was targeted. Goldman Sachs benefited from the U.S. government’s bailout of insurance giant American International Group and is accused of practices that contributed to the economic crisis.

On Monday, CabinCr3w released information about a New York police officer who is seen in videos spraying pepper spray into the faces of women protesters who are penned behind a police barricade net at the “Occupy Wall Street” demonstrations. The officer, identified as Deputy Inspector Anthony Bologna via videos and close-up photos of his face and name on his badge, appears to walk over to the group of women and spray them directly in the face unprovoked.

BART Police Site Hacked by Beginner – International Business Times

leave a comment »

When Northern California’s Bay Area Rapid Transit agency turned off cell phone service to disrupt peaceful protests, “hacktivist” group Anonymous, breached BART’s Web site and released personal information in protest.

Those troubles continued for BART on Wednesday evening, when the group took aim at BART’s Police Officers Association Web site and published data on over 100 BART police officers.

“Leaked personal data, emails and passwords for 102 #BART police officers,” a post on Twitter in the name of “@YourAnonNews.” read Wednesday. A link to a Web site that contained the hacked data was also posted.

But the daring move wasn’t the result of methodical planning from longtime experts. Log files from Internet Relay Chat, a means of online communication that Anonymous favors, shows the attack was carried out by someone with no previous experience.

For the Internet collective known as Anonymous, the lulz are bittersweet this week with the arrest of the hacktivist extraordinaire known as Topiary.

“Topiary” is the online alias of 18-year-old Jake Davis. Authorities claim Davis is a key player in the Anonymous collective. Davis is also accused of association with Lulz Security (LulzSec) – the short lived but stunningly successful offshoot of Anonymous.

LulzSec and Anonymous are the least of your hacker worries – Jul. 25, 2011

But in the truly grand ecosystem of cybercriminals, LulzSec, Anonymous, AntiSec and other so-called “hacktivist” organizations are much more of a nuisance than a serious threat. They’re fringe groups that are by far the least worrisome of all cyber attackers.

“The terrifying fact about these attacks is that the delinquents are quite young. If these 17 year old schoolboys are able to do that, what would happen if a much more experienced hacker would attack?”
