Booz Allen Hamilton, a contractor for the U.S. military and federal agencies, is the apparent victim of a hacking incident, The New York Times reported Monday.
Hackers connected to the hacker group Anonymous published a file that it says contains the email addresses and passwords of 90,000 members of the military. It claims the data came from a poorly protected server owned by the contractor, the Times said.
Booz Allen Hamilton said on its Twitter account that it does not comment on threats or attacks on its systems.
The hackers claimed to have found more than just the data that was posted, and they also claimed to have deleted some software during the intrusion.
The Times said the hackers claimed to have specifically targeted Booz Allen Hamilton for what they considered "shady practices," and had been scouting the company for some time before deciding to expose some of its data.
