Earlier this week the fact that the Austin , Texas security firm Stratfor was hacked by Anonymous was announced. The Stratfor security site gave up details on hundreds of thousands of people that had used the site and its services in the hack. A hack of this sort is definitely not a good thing for a security firm to have happen.

If you wondered what was going to happen to all that stolen data, AntiSec is putting all of it online. In total there are 860,000 member details posted including 75,000 credit card numbers. Most of those cards are reportedly expired.

There is also 200GB worth of emails to be posted after they are redacted. It's worth noting that a security firm should have known better than to have credit card numbers stored to begin with. I am sure the damage to the reputation at Stratfor will be hard, if not impossible to overcome.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
