Anonymous hackers claim to have stolen 14,000 passwords and 8,000 credit card numbers from military, special operations and law enforcement equipment retailer

"The data breach occurred several months ago, according to Anonymous, but the group only now decided to post the data online," writes PCWorld's Ian Paul.

"A Twitter account associated with Anonymous has posted a screenshot of an e-mail from dated Dec. 15 admitting to the data breach," Paul writes. "The purported e-mail confirms that Anonymous obtained customer usernames, passwords, and possibly encrypted credit card information."
