Hackers claim attack on FBI partner organization, 1,000 compromised accounts
Stephen Dockery of Associated Press reports:
Internet hackers say they have compromised the security of more than 1,000 accounts at an FBI partner organization.
The online hacking collective Lulz Security says it attacked a local section of InfraGard, a partnership between the FBI and the private sector to share security information. Connecticut-based InfraGard’s website is down.

It would be nice to see some proof of compromise or get confirmation from InfraGard-CT. I note that I have not yet seen any follow-up to the hackers’ claims that they acquired 200,000 accounts’ information from Brinks. While I have no reason to disbelieve them, adding incidents to a blog or database without some confirmation or proof feels… wrong.
