Alleged Stratfor hack could be biggest in history of Anonymous / LulzSec

Members of Anonymous and LulzSec are claiming to have carried out possibly the biggest and most significant hacking attack in their short history. They claim to have allegedly hacked Stratfor, one of the world’s leading global intelligence companies.

The claims, which have not been verified by Stratfor at the time of writing, include allegations that email correspondence, client lists and payment information have been acquired by the hackers. There are unconfirmed claims that charitable donations have been made using some of this payment information.

It’s not clear how the alleged hack was carried out, but if it’s confirmed, it will be a major success for Anonymous and LulzSec. There’s also the fact that the hackers claim they haven’t yet gone through the emails, suggesting that they believe there could be more embarrassment to come.

  2. Unfortunately, everybody’s identity will be stolen at some point – it is likely it your’s has already been stolen (but you just don’t realize it…yet). Many casual observers are claiming 2011 is “the year of the breach,” but they don’t understand it is only the beginning of a new era. This is perfectly explained in the article “2012: End of the World or Beginning of the Breach Era?” (http://www.theidchannel.com/index.php?option=com_blog&task=detail&id=48)

    Safe Identities.
