Anonymous May Have Hacked Petraeus Mistress [View all]

A Yahoo email account belonging to former CIA Director David Petraeus' mistress may have been compromised by the group Anonymous.
The personal email account, which other sources confirmed belongs to the writer and veteran at the heart of this week's Washington scandal, was revealed in the decentralized online group's publication of millions of email accounts of customers of the commercial intelligence company STRATFOR.
The email appears on a listing of accounts obtained by the group after they hacked and stole credit cards from the company. Anonymous also obtained email logins to STRATFOR's website which potentially could have been used by Paula Broadwell for email or other secure sites as well as correspondence.
It is not clear what, if any, information belonging to Broadwell may have been obtained by the Internet-based group, whose members style themselves "hacktivists" but whom authorities have pursued on a variety of charges.
