The Anonymous hacking group said Monday it had broken into military 
contractor Booz Allen Hamilton's network and posted 90,000 military 
e-mail addresses and passwords online.

Booz Allen isn't commenting. "As part of @BoozAllen security policy, we 
generally do not comment on specific threats or actions taken against 
our systems," the company said via its Twitter feed.

In addition to the e-mail addresses, which Anonymous suggests expose 
members of the intelligence community, the group also posted other data 
it said could potentially offer access to other government agencies and 

"We infiltrated a server on [Booz Allen's] network that basically had no 
security measures in place," Anonymous said in a statement, posted to 
the torrent site where it uploaded the data.
