Lulzsec – the hacker claiming responsibility for a hack exposing 171,000 accounts which includes database for a military dating website and stole passwords, email addresses and other information, according to Pastebin post. “The website http://www.militarysingles.com/ was recently closed day ago or so, so we dumped email db,” the hackers said in their post. “There are emails such as @us.army.mil ; @carney.navy.mil ; @greatlakes.cnet.navy.mil ; @microsoft.com ; etc..”
Representatives from ESingles, which operates the dating site, did not respond to an e-mail seeking comment by CNET. However, the firm commented on an article about the breach on DataBreaches.net:
We at ESingles Inc. are aware of the claim that someone has hacked MilitarySingles.com and are currently investigating the situation. At this time there is no actual evidence that MilitarySingles.com was hacked and it is possible that the Tweet from Operation Digiturk is simply a false claim.
We do however take the security and privacy of our members very seriously and will therefore treat this claim as if it were real and proceed with the required security steps in order to ensure the website and it’s database is secure. Admin, MilitarySingles.com
