Hackers claim to leak Wall Street resumes
A new hacking group appears to be targeting Wall Street, in sympathy with the waning Occupy Wall Street movement.
Perhaps as proof of its potency, the group, known as Team GhostShell, has released what it said was information from 50,000 user accounts for an online jobs board that focuses on Wall Street, ITWallStreet.com. The group made 12 links available on various web sites, which ended up quickly deleting the links.
Information Week reports that, "The released data did appear to contain user credentials, including hashed passwords--some of which had been decoded into plaintext--for ITWallStreet.com users, as well as salary expectations, which ranged from $40,000 to $400,000. Other published information appeared to include emails between account managers and headhunters discussing clients' suitability for various roles. A published client list, meanwhile, included numerous Wall Street firms, such as Dow Jones, Morgan Stanley, and Wachovia Bank."
