Purportedly the leak included 295 email addresses and plaintext passwords along with other bits of information posted to various Pastebin-like sites. According to OZDC.net the target in question was hXXp://www.fbi.gov.c.footprint.net. We’re at a bit of a loss on how anyone could have confused a FBI sub-domain with the “official” website. Regardless, OZDC.net and other prominent researchers later discovered that this data has been floating around since June. So nothing new here…

The official website server of Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has been hacked and the database has been leaked by The Hackers Army from Pakistan.

The hackers gain access of the FBI’s website a couple of hours ago, downloaded the database and leaked it publicly on Pastebin.

The leak data contains address, server address, network IP, Bureau’s address, Vulnerable Open Ports in FBI InterCommunication Intranet and total 295 official email addresses with their plain text passwords of FBI officials.
