#1254622: Hackers publish info on FBI National Academy alum

Description: Hackers posted personal information on FBI, Secret Service and other federal employees as well as police officers nicked from three websites associated with the FBI National Academy (FBINAA).

“We believe we have identified the three affected Chapters that have been hacked and they are currently working on checking the breach with their data security authorities,” the group said in a statement, which stressed that its national database server provider has said the FBINAA national database is secure.

In each of the three instances, FBINAA said, “a third-party software was being used by the affected Chapters, however it is still too early to determine if this impacted the breach.”

Information exposed included emails, phone numbers, employers’ names and home addresses of FBINNA alumni.

“If it is determined that there has been felonious activity, we well prosecute the culprits to the fullest extent of the law,” the organization said.
