Hacktivist collective Team Ghostshell is claiming this morning to have spilled 1.6 million accounts from a handful of companies in the aerospace, nanotechnology, banking, law, education and government realm, a hack the group deems Project White Fox.
The group claims White Fox is its “final stand” this year in a lengthy diatribe posted to Pastebin. The post goes on about internet freedom, espionage and trolling before addressing the actual leak.
The leaked information was purportedly taken from the European Space Agency, NASA’s Center for Advance Engineering and Bigelow Aerospace, along with about a dozen other companies. The divulged data appears to be a dump of names, passwords – some hashed, some plain text–resumes, admin logins, phone numbers and e-mail addresses, among other bits of information.
The group goes on to boast that it also sent a series of e-mails detailing vulnerable servers and general security flaws to the Washington and Seattle divisions of the FBI, ICS-CERT, and the Homeland Security Information Network, to name a few.
The Anonymous-affiliated hacktivist group made headlines twice earlier this fall when it purportedly posted 120,000 records from Ivy League schools like Harvard University and Princeton University and later, in November, allegedly spilled 2.5 million records belonging to the Russian police and politicians.
