Members of TeaMp0isoN recently published more than 1,000 e-mail addresses, user names and passwords for United Nations staff.

"It is still unknown what server has been breached, but judging by the prevalence of email addresses, and the fact that a set of login credentials seems to belong to the administrator (who also has an address), it is believed that it was that of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)," writes Help Net Security's Zeljka Zorz.

"If the dumped data did indeed come from a hacked server and is legitimate and accurate, it would seem that it wasn't encrypted and that there was no minimum mandated length requirement for passwords -- all practices that you wouldn't expect from an organization such as the UN," Zorz writes.

Go to "1000+ UN emails, usernames and passwords leaked" to read the details.
