For the second time this week, Anonymous-related hackers known as Team GhostShell has attacked Wall Street.
The group, which takes its name from a Super Mario Bros. weapon, hacked job site ITWallStreet.com and released at least 12 files containing private user information, Computerworld reported.
The files included bonus information, email exchanges between firms and prospective employees, and résumés. The applications were for jobs at major firms, most notably Goldman Sachs, Dow Jones, and Morgan Stanley.
“The salary expectations of job candidates ranged from $40,000 to more than $400,000 suggesting that ITWallStreet's breached resume database included everyone from entry-level IT professionals to senior technology executives,” Computerworld reported. “In fact, several of the published email exchanges referred to candidates who appeared to have applied for vice-president level positions at Wall Street firms.”
Masakaki, a hacker with Team GhostShell, claims to have access to 50,000 accounts on ITWallStreet.
Earlier this week Team GhostShell launched “MidasBank,” an operation that leaked usernames and passwords for 50,000 Wall Street accounts.
