Team GhostShell leaks 1.6M account details
Posted on 10 December 2012.
Hacker collective Team GhostShell, which has recently specialized in massive data leaks, has done it again and made public 1.6 million account details allegedly stolen from over 30 websites.

The targets do business in fields such as aerospace, banking, law, nanotechnology, education, government and the military. Many are well known globally such as NASA and the (relatively recently compromised) European Space Agency, while others are more familiar to people working in the specific industries (World Airport Transfers, Crestwood Technology Group, Texas Bankers, Hamamatsu, the Global Business Network, and more).

The leaked documents contain tons of diverse data: user and administrator account information (names, usernames, email addresses, passwords, phone numbers), mailing lists, defense materials, and more.

The group claims that this "Project White Fox" will be the last massive leak coming from them this year, then turned the readers' attention towards the World Conference on International Telecommunications (WCIT-12) currently under way in Dubai and Anonymous' "Operation WCIT."
