Anonymous Hacks Federal Reserve

Following another recent attack in which the loosely-organized Anonymous hacking collective released the credentials of over 4000 American bank executives, it is now being reported that Anonymous has published additional documents indicating that they have penetrated much further into the US Federal Reserve’s computer systems than previously revealed.

ZDNet reports that the documents, obtained as part of Anonymous’ Operation Last Resort (a series of retaliatory attacks on US government systems following the suicide of Aaron Swartz), were themselves disseminated from a hacked yacht club website. It appears that this is a follow-up attack to the bank executive document release of last week, brought on by the Federal Reserve’s dismissive response.
