The hacking collective has dumped links to the data containing over 1.6 million accounts it claims to have stolen from these organizations on Pastebin. The records seem to have obtained through an SQL injection attack and upon closer look at some of these files reveal information such as names, email addresses, home addresses, mailing lists, passwords, defense material tests and analysis notes and the likes.

Some of the files even contain more sensitive information like administrator email addresses their passwords, hashed password and telephone numbers. #ProjectWhiteFox, through which the team carried out its latest activities, is said to be the hacking collective’s last hacking project of this year.

“#ProjectWhiteFox will conclude this year’s series of attacks by promoting hacktivism worldwide and drawing attention to the freedom of information on the net”, notes Team GhostShell in its Pastebin post. The team has revealed that it has already sent out emails to a number of organizations detailed the security failures.

The group has been loosely linked with notorious hacking collective Anonymous and it has been involved in some high profile hacks like attack on universities and leaking of over 120,000 records just a couple of months back.
