After Anonymous posted sensitive credentials of over 4,600 banking executives to a government Web site on Super Bowl Sunday, the Federal Reserve acknowledged the attack in a Tuesday morning statement to affected individuals and press.
However, while a spokesperson from the Federal Reserve told The Huffington Post that Anonymous' claim to the hack's importance was "overstated," information security professionals that serve financial institutions are saying the exact opposite—and are not best pleased with the Federal Reserve.
ZDNet has now learned that the compromised and exposed database belongs to The St. Louis Fed Emergency Communications System.

Wow! Seems like Anonymous is doing some damage to US government sites. Wonder how the Pentagon "Cyber Command" is going to respond. (thanks torrentthief)

While I definitely don't hold much sympathy for bankers or the Federal Reserve, I have to ask how this hack relates to "the reform of computer laws" or investigation into Aaron Swartz's prosecution. Seems like this is more related to Occupy-type protest.

The federal reserve isn't run by the government, it is a private organisation, it is pure evil.

The government Web site, which was compromised and used to post the spreadsheet, The Alabama Criminal Justice Information Center, did not respond to requests for comment from the Washington Post.

The page—with URL filename "oops-we-did-it-again"—remained accessible into early Monday morning PST. A cached version of the page was still available as of Tuesday afternoon, as well as a copy of the raw text placed on Pastebin at the time of the attack.


Anyone bother reading the article. Anonymous should be jailed, they are farking around with our economy.

What they(Anon) need to do is actually collapse our economy completely. Maybe that will start the change that we desperately need.

Well all I see is both sides of the coin are the devil, because the Federal Governement is evil too. Just remember, it was our governmet officias who went behind closed doors and signed the deal with th devil. WHat is so funny, is the USA faught in a revolt to end Bristish stronghold, only to sell out to them and others by allow them to control our money. When you dont control your own money than you have a serios problem.

The only way the USA could get out of debt with the FRB is to make its own money, make its own bank to back it up which is easy as they could have these corps provide the capital and use that money to pay off the debt little by little but dont borrow anymore.

There are better ways. Like Obama not bailing out GM.

This is why I despise mindless script kiddies. If you want to enact change do it through politics, not mindless vandalism.

The US cannot possible go back to the Gold Standard. There is not enough gold to support our debt.
