If what The Atlantic Wire and Gizmodo are reporitng is true, there is big trouble on Capitol Hill. In response to the NSA surveillance scandal, Anonymous say they have leaked the email passwords of 2,000 Congressional members. As Adam Clark Estes reports:
On Monday night, the affiliate account @AnonLastResort tweeted a link to a document 2,000 email addresses long. The vast majority of them come from the House of Representatives, though there are some gems in there from the U.S. Attorney General's office, the Senate and even New York's comptroller ... Anonymous included the passwords as well. In the leak, the hackers say they've omitted some of the passwords and shuffled the others so that they don't show up right next to the email address they unlock. But it's not that hard to figure out what goes where if you really want to break into your congressman's email history.
But the hacktivist group has been known to blow smoke in the past, so it is unclear if the leak is real or not.
