After ProjectDragonFly (100,000 accounts leaked from Chinese Sites), Project Hellfire (one million accounts belonging to Governments, Law Enforcement Agencies, etc.) and ProjectWestWind (120,000 accounts from top 100 universities all over the world), Team GhostShell has unveiled a new act of their cyber campaign against Governments and Organizations all over the world.
This summer, when Team GhostShell released one million accounts as part of their Project HellFire campaign, I was particularly impressed by one sentence contained in the pastebin statement which accompanied the release.
One million accounts/records leaked. We are also letting everyone know that more releases, collaborations with Anonymous and other, plus two more projects are still scheduled for this fall and winter. It’s only the beginning.
Here the first part with the timeline from 1 to 15 August 2012.
Here we are with the second part of the August 2012 Cyber Attacks Timeline. A second part of the month that has been characterized by hacktivism, most of all because of the so-called OperationFreeAssange, which has targeted many high-profile websites.
