A hacker group inspired by LulzSec and Anonymous claims to have breached the network of the Defense Information Systems Agency and extracted sensitive information it plans to post online, reports Elizabeth Montalbano at Information Week.
The group, which calls itself Crazies, didn’t go into detail about the contents of the files it claims to have taken from DISA’s network, but said it will post them online in less than a week.
DISA officials said they are trying to confirm with the U.S. Cyber Command, which tracks such intrusions, as to whether the group’s claim is legitimate, Information Week said.
