were posted to an encrypted text-sharing website. The group behind the breach claims to have downloaded 200GB of data from the US Department of Justice’s internal network.
It is the latest foreign-policy motivated hack of the U.S. government. Late last year, a teenager diverted all calls to U.S. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, directing them to the Free Palestine Movement.
