Anonymous Hacks NATO, One Gigabyte of Data Stolen

Kara Reeder

The hacktivist group known as Anonymous claims to have breached NATO security and accessed 1 gigabyte of data, reports The group says it will not publish all of the data because it would be "irresponsible" to do so.


The group did post two PDF files on its Twitter page, according to International Business Times. One alleged NATO document is from 2007 and is a funding request for communication systems for the Joint Communications Control Centre, while the second document, from 2008, is a proposal to outsource NATO communications systems in Kosovo.


Anonymous appears undeterred by the recent rash of arrests. As we reported yesterday, the FBI has arrested 16 people believed to be affiliated with Anonymous. The UK has a juvenile in custody, while the Netherlands cuffed four other suspects.
