Anonymous, the well-known online hacktivist group, has been involved in a number of high-profile cyber attacks lately. The group has launched successful attacks on a number of websites, from those of governmental agencies to private organizations. The latest victim of Anonymous’ exploits is GlobalCerts, an information security company.

Anonymous has successfully hacked high-profile security firm GlobalCerts’ website and laid their hand on the firm’s databases. The hacker who launched the attack, belongs to a splinter group of Anonymous, popularly known as AntiSec and goes by the name of “57UN.”

Once he was able to access the databases, he nicked off the data from 1500 records and then leaked it online. The online file that he published contains phone numbers, company names, job titles and email addresses.

What makes this ironic is that GlobalCerts claims to be a company which specializes in high-profile data security and offers a wide range of tools and services to that end. The description on the website of the company reads, “GlobalCerts provides a comprehensive solution that meets a full range of secure messaging needs—including an automatic, transparent, inter-organizational secure messaging product, the SecureMail Gateway.” 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.

After hacking and leaking the data, the hacker wrote, “Company that should be protecting, got hacked and failed to protect.” The leaked details have been published here.
