Anonymous hacks US State Dept, investment firm in homage to Aaron Swartz, #Lulzsec
http://rt.com/usa/news/anonymous-hacks-state-department-617/

Anonymous has announced it gained access to the State Department’s website, captured a database, and published it online. It also entered the site of investment firm George K. Baum & Company – all in the name of Aaron Swartz and Lulzsec.

The databases which they claimed to have obtained were posted on ZeroBin website. The data dump is part of “round five” of “Operation Last Resort” – Anonymous’ anti-US campaign which was launched shortly after the suicide of internet activist Aaron Swartz.

The group published the names and email addresses of State Department consular and careers staff members. In some cases, their phone numbers and date of birth were also revealed.

Anonymous also defaced the website of George K. Baum and Company, adding a page which linked to the firm’s client and user account credentials, passwords, phone numbers, and access to transaction information.
