DATA LOSS—U.S.July 19, 2012
COMPUTERWORLD reports on a hacker who claims to have broken into ITWallStreet.com, a website for IT professionals seeking employment. The hack exposed information--including names, mailing addresses, e-mail addresses, usernames, hashed passwords and phone numbers--on thousands of jobseekers when as many as 12 data files were publicly posted. The information also included salary and bonus expectations, the report states. A spokesman for ITWallStreet.com said the company would respond to inquiries about the breach at a later date. The hacker who claimed responsibility for the breach says 50,000 accounts were compromised.
