Anonymous claims to leak Paris climate officials’ data (UPDATED)

Cory Bennett reports:

The hacker group Anonymous claims to have released the personal log-in details of roughly 1,415 officials at the United Nations climate conference in Paris.

The release was apparently done to protest the recent detention of activists during a climate march in Paris on Sunday. Over 200 people were arrested after clashing with riot police.

Members of the loosely affiliated hacking collective posted the alleged data on text-sharing site Pastebin. The dump includes names, emails, usernames, passwords, phone numbers and security questions and answers.

UPDATE: The hack has been confirmed.
