Hacktivists are taking credit for a data breach impacting Bank of America - an
incident the hackers claim allowed them to access employee and executive data
stored through a third party.
"The data was retrieved from an Israeli server in Tel Aviv," says the
hacktivist group Par:AnoIA, part of the Anonymous Intelligence Agency, in a
release issued Feb. 27.
The group says it released 14 gigabytes of data, code and software related to
BofA, Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters, TEKSystems and ClearForest.
ClearForest, a Thomson Reuters company based in Tel Aviv that provides business
and data analytics, is the third-party service provider hacktivists claim was
storing data on an open server.
