Hackers Stole 1.7GB of Department of Justice Data

The worldwide-known hacker group Anonymous has announced that its members managed to grab 1.7GB of information from the United States Department of Justice. Beforehand, the hackers took down the Bureau of Justice Statistics’ official website.

Anonymous announced itself through YouTube video named “Monday Mail Mayhem”, along with publishing a download on the world’s largest BitTorrent tracker The Pirate Bay. The hacktivists said that they were releasing 1.7GB of information which used to belong to the United States Bureau of Justice, until that moment.

Although the announcement alluded to the contents of the stolen information, Anonymous preferred not to highlight any specific discoveries. The only thing it revealed was that within the booty users might find lots of shiny things like internal emails, as well as the entire database dump.

In addition, Anonymous took credit for the takedown of the United States Justice Department site, a claim which has been corroborated since. Anonymous “lulzed” because they took the official site down after being owned, thus showing without a doubt that they were scared of what would inevitably happen.

By the way, this isn’t the first time that the hacktivists collective has targeted the United States Justice Department – earlier in 2012 there was another attack of Anonymous registered on their official website.

In the meantime, the US Justice Department hasn’t commented on the news, nor there were clarifications on what exactly was stolen and if there were any scandals due to the leaked information. As usual, Anonymous asked everyone to search through the data to find something interesting.

SyKoTiK avatarThis is just another article pointing out how childish and basic Anonymous' attacks seem to be. Here... let me paraphrase the whole article for those of you that skimmed over it:
"Anonymous flooded a web-server's host and caused a few minutes of interruption/downtime until the site admins contacted the ISP the site runs off of and black-holed the IPs and subnets associated with the flood of activity or disabled external ICMP echo requests on their firewalls/routers, showing how easy it is to stop a DDoS attack.

Anonymous also managed to extract 1.7GBs of information from a server most likely housed in the Department of Justice's DMZ network because the data contained on it is not critical, sensitive, or in any way a national security risk, making that 1.7GBs of data absolutely worthless."

There... that should sum it up pretty nicely.

SyKoTiK avatar@james4361: Read my post before YOU blab. I said "most likely". I didn't say that it was worthless, without any uncertainty or possibility, like YOU assumed that I said. Regardless of the data obtained, it's still very boring and tiring to hear of yet another website that was "taken down" by Anonymous. Nothing was taken down, it was just inaccessible for a brief period of time. Taken down would be more like they actually shut something down by their activities - crashed the OS, changed the IP address the server listens on, etc. - which they didn't do. The day that I read that Anonymous emptied an entire database, reformatted a server, or anything along THOSE lines, is the day that I take back everything negative I've ever said about Anonymous. Until then, they're just coming off as script-kiddies with too much time and not enough sex.
