A Twitter account claiming to be the “Hacking Division” for the terror organization ISIS has published what it claims to be the personal information of hundreds of members of the U.S. military and government personnel, and urged supporters to carry out attacks, NBC News reported.
The Islamic state hacker group claimed the information contained names, emails, passwords, credit card and phone numbers of personnel that included individuals from the Air Force, the Marines, NASA and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
Flashpoint Intelligence, a global security firm and NBC News consultant, said it could not authenticate the claim or the accuracy of the information.
There is also no indication as to how old the information is, or whether the email addresses and passwords are still valid.
"We are aware of the report but cannot confirm credibility at this time," a spokesperson for the Department of Defense said in an email. "The safety of our service members is always a primary concern."
