A member of Anonymous and AntiSec called Stun (57UN) claims to have hacked secure messaging provider GlobalCerts.

"The file he published online contains around 1,600 names, job titles, phone numbers, email addresses, company names and other information," writes Softpedia's Eduard Kovacs.

"The 'doxed' information's opening tries to justify or explain the attack," writes Neowin's Paul Ferson. "It reads as follows: 'Company that should be protecting, got hacked and failed to protect.'"

On its Web site, the company states, "GlobalCerts has built a global reputation for open, trusted, highly reliable, and IT-focused secure messaging products. Healthcare providers, banks, businesses and governments use the GlobalCerts solution to achieve simple and highly cost-effective secure messaging deployments."

"Apparently, the company either doesn’t apply the same tools to guard its own security or this attack shows how fickle its security measures are," writes TheTechJournal's Salman Latif.
