Anonymous Hackers Hit Police Equipment Supplier
User names, passwords and e-mail addresses were published online.
Members of Anonymous recently hacked the official site for law enforcement equipment supplier New York Iron Works.
"New York Iron Works’ main webpage was defaced to display a message, along with tons of information obtained from the organization’s servers," writes Softpedia's Eduard Kovacs. "The leaked data includes usernames, clear-text passwords and email addresses."
"Currently, the site of New York Iron Works is offline," Kovacs writes. "The decision was most likely made because of the large number of login credentials that were made public."
