In case you missed it there seems to be a massive leak of records by a hacker collective known as Team GhostShell. The effort, dubbed ProjectWhiteFox, affects a number of sectors including government and the military. In terms of DC-related organizations a number of the records came from NASA, the FBI, and General Dynamics. Cyber War News is of course on top of the leak and includes a link to the requisite PasteBin dump.
Amongst the 1.6M records are a large number of password hashes. For those interested in practicing their password cracking skillz, @drb0n3z has already culled through the collection and added them to his DropBox repository for download and assistance in cracking.

Hacker collective Team GhostShell, which has recently specialized in massive data leaks, has done it again and made public 1.6 million account details allegedly stolen from over 30 websites.
The targets do business in fields such as aerospace, banking, law, nanotechnology, education, government and the military. Many are well known globally such as NASA and the (relatively recently compromised) European Space Agency, while others are more familiar to people working in the specific industries (World Airport Transfers, Crestwood Technology Group, Texas Bankers, Hamamatsu, the Global Business Network, and more).
Does anyone happen to know the hash algorithms used? Let us know in the comments below. Today’s post pic is from CBTPlanet.com. See ya!
