Hacktivist group Anonymous was at it again Thursday, claiming it had 
breached the servers of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), 
but that it likely would not reveal most of the 1 gigabyte of 
information it said was stolen.

"Yes, #NATO was breached. And we have lots of restricted material," the 
group tweeted on its AnonymousIRC Twitter feed, one of several it and 
another hacker group, AntiSec, use to release information and news about 
their activities.

AntiSec includes members of Anonymous and LulzSec, another hacktivist 
group that officially ceased operations at the end of June.

Anonymous said it could not post most of the data because it would be 
"irresponsible," but still mocked the global treaty organization in 
another Twitter post.
