The names and personal details of 20,000 FBI agents and 9,000 Department of Homeland Security officers have been dumped online.
A hacker published the DHS info Sunday and the FBI details late Monday via Cryptobin along with the password — lol — to access the information.
Included in the dumps, which were announced on Twitter by the hacker, are names, job titles, phone numbers, state locations and e-mail addresses. The Twitter account announcing the dumps, @DotGovs, use a profile picture of Disney cartoon character Buzz Lightyear and the name ‘penis.’ Under that is the hashtag #FreePalestine along with the line “Fuck your government.”
The hacker got in touch with Motherboard, providing the publication with a copy of the data, which included the names of approximately 1,000 FBI employees in an intelligence analysis role. Job descriptions included titles such as: task force deputy director, security specialist and special agent, to name a few.
The hacker bragged to Motherboard that he duped a government employee into providing info that he was then able to use to access a DOJ portal that, in turn, gave him access to three different government computers.
Motherboard was able to confirm that much of the info was legitimate, although some appeared to be outdated.
The hacking incident remains under investigation by the Department of Justice.
“This unauthorized access is still under investigation; however, there is no indication at this time that there is any breach of sensitive personally identifiable information,” DOJ spokesman Peter Carr told Motherboard.
It is not yet known who the hacker is but, based on the Twitter account being used, it appears he supports the Pro-Palestine agenda.
