Hacker steals details of 10,000 DoJ, Homeland Security employees
Twitter was the destination for the dump, where the hacker pointed users to two files stored on plain-text storage website CryptoBin. The first release on Sunday night contained the names, job titles, work email addresses and phone numbers for nearly 9,000 Homeland Security employees.
The second dump came on Monday, and contained similar details for what appeared to be Federal Bureau of Investigation employees. The hacker had threatened a second dump on Monday, saying a file would be released containing information on 20,000 FBI employees.
A spokesman at the DoJ confirmed the breach, and said it was being investigated, but asserted it wasn't as severe as it seemed, with no evidence information such as dates of birth and social security numbers had been seen or released. ■
