Members of Anonymous recently published user names, passwords, and classified documents stolen from the Greek Finance Ministry.
"The leaked documents include various classified data from e-mails that were exchanged between the Greek Ministry and envoys from international lenders negotiating more austerity measures and bailouts, to thousands of passwords of Greek individuals and evaluations of banks," writes The Hacker News' Mohit Kumar. "'The cyber attack was described as one of the most serious against Greek government networks,' SecNews.gr said in [a] report."
"The attackers claimed that their aim is to expose all the data of Greek economy so all Greek citizens know the truth," ANSAmed reports.
"Citizens of Greece you are paying Banks and international hedge funds," the hackers wrote in a statement on AnonPaste. "They own your lives. Revolt before it's too late. The austerity measures should not pass."
