ShortRead: Hackers have leaked personal data of US Military officials and according to experts, it’s legit and never been leaked online before!
Ghost Squad Hackers (GSH) made their entry a few months ago by conducting Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks on Ku Klux Klan (KKK) and Black Lives Matter websites. The group then took part in Anonymous‘ linked operation OpIcarus against banking and financial institutions but the latest attack shows the hackers have graduated to a whole new level.
Yes, Ghost Squad Hackers have published US Military email accounts and personal information as part of #OpSilence campaign, the data was first uploaded to an onion site in the DarkNet and later published on other media like social networks and Pastebin.
The data was first found and analysed by Shay Rozen, cyber intelligence and Darknet expert for Hacked-DB who found out that there is a raw .txt file containing 4948 Lines of data on 2,437 US Army personals including names, emails, phone numbers, Dob, addresses, zip codes, credit card data including types, numbers, expiration date and CVV codes in plain text.
In the original onion site that published the data first the hackers said:
“Fear is freedom! Subjugation is liberation! The contradiction is the truth! These are the truths of this world! Surrender to those truths, you pigs who fawn over clothing!” ~~Ghost Squad Hackers~~ #OpSilence!
