Members of the Saudi Arabian hacker group Group Hp-Hack recently breached the Web site for the University of Pittsburgh's McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine (h/t Cyber War News).

The hackers alerted Cyber War News to the attack on Twitter, writing, "Next Target: Regenerative Medicine at the McGowan Institute."

They then published more than 800 full names, e-mail addresses, user names and encrypted passwords on PasteBay.net.

Other recent targets of Group Hp-Hack include the Australian TV and film jobs site Screen Hub, New York's St. Francis Preparatory School, and the Russian auto accessory site Auto-Dress.ru.
