A US private sector affiliate of the FBI has become the latest target of a hackers’ collective, which recently penetrated the online security defences of Nintendo and Sony.
Nearly 180 passwords belonging to members of the Atlanta chapter of InfraGard were stolen, according to the non-profit organisation, which connects businesses with law enforcement authorities.
Copies of the passwords – which appeared to include users from the US military, cybersecurity organisations and major communications companies – were posted online by the anonymous hacking collective, Lulz Security.
