Military Meltdown Monday

The hacktivist group Anonymous posted around 90,000 military email addresses online on Monday. Hackers got the addresses from Booz Allen Hamilton networks. Members of Anonymous also say they got a hold of "maps and keys for various other treasure chests buried on the islands of government agencies, federal contractors and shady whitehat companies."

From The Epoch Times:
"Anonymous further claims that Booz Allen was involved with several government surveillance and intelligence-gathering programs "that may be deemed illegal" and insinuate that several of Booz Allen's executives, all former members of the Nation Security Agency, garnered illegal government favor in their private business efforts.
Anonymous preceded the release with multiple lead-up tweets from several of their affiliated twitter accounts. One account, 'anonymouSabu,' formerly part of the LulzSec hacking group, claims that this is the first of 'two of the biggest releases for Anonymous in the last 4 years,' and sent a warning to the intelligence community, stating 'Everyone brace. This is literally explosive.'"
