Over the weekend while everyone was getting stuffed, AntiSec, a group affiliated with Anonymous, were busy hacking away into Stratfor.

CNET reports:

Austin, Texas-based Strategic Forecasting, or Stratfor, disclosed over the weekend that its Web site, which remains down, was hacked and information about its corporate subscribers–who include the likes of the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, and Miami Police Department–was disclosed. AntiSec, an Anonymous-affiliated hacktivist group, quickly claimed responsibility and promised “mayhem” with plans to release even more documents.

Documents from the hack posted to date by both Anonymous and AntiSec, according to Identity Finder, include:

• 50,277 unique credit card numbers, of which 9,651 are not expired. 
• 86,594 e-mail addresses, of which 47,680 are unique. 
• 27,537 phone numbers, of which 25,680 are unique. 
• 44,188 encrypted passwords, of which roughly 50 percent could be easily cracked. 

Anonymous plays a large roll in the Occupy Wall Street movement and was also responsible for the leaking of NYPD officers and families personal information, including their home addresses after using pepper spray on Occupy protesters in New York.
