Pentagon Hacked By Wikiboat.

A newly established hacking collective has published private information that they say was stolen from the official website of the US Department of Defense.

On Thursday, hackers with a newly-formed WikiBoat collective released a collection of names, email addresses and phone numbers allegedly lifted from files they claim were pilfered from a database hosted on, the main website for the Pentagon.

“Recently today, I stumbled across a very old leak on my Computer; I cannot remember if I have already leaked this site, but I do know that this site deserves to be leaked. Who is this site we are targeting? ,” reads a statement from an WikiBoat operative posted on the website Pastebin.

“[W]hile this is not a SQLi vulnerability we still did manage to get our hands on part of the database not all. So enjoi!”

The WikiBoat is believed to be an offshoot of the international hacktivism collective Anonymous and was formally established on March 30. According to a separate press release posted last month by one member, the group exists is composed of “a small team of individuals simply looking for the one thing we all love: lulz.” more
