Four Irish, British suspects helped Stratfor hack: U.S.

I updated specific incident reports on DataLossDB.org yesterday, but thought I should mention this here, too. Basil Katz of Reuters reports:

Federal prosecutors said four Irish and British men charged in a crackdown on the international hacking group Anonymous also helped breach the security analysis company Stratfor last year.

In an indictment made public on Wednesday, Manhattan federal prosecutors said the four men, previously charged in March, were part of the “Antisec” faction of Anonymous that disclosed in December that it had hacked into Strategic Forecasting Inc, or Stratfor.

The indictment was uploaded to Scibd and also identifies their roles in other hacks such as Fox, Sony Pictures, and the Arizona Department of Public Safety.
