On Wednesday, 48 hours after releasing a policy paper on cybersecurity, the top trade association for intelligence contractors got a first-hand lesson on the subject: they discovered that their website was hacked. Cryptome , a site affiliated with the hacker collective Anonymous, published the membership emails and phone numbers and in some cases home addresses for the members of the Intelligence and National Security Alliance (INSA). By clicking on a link titled, “INSA Nest of Official and Corporate Spies,” anyone can find contact information for senior officials at the NSA, FBI, and CIA, as well as top national security contracting firms like Booz Allen Hamilton.
Last week, a "premier intelligence and national security organization" was hacked and then hundreds of intelligence officials, ranging from the NSA, FBI, CIA, the Pentagon, the White House, had their names, email addresses, some phone numbers and even home addresses posted on Cryptome. Intelligence and National Security Alliance (INSA) published a Cyber Intelligence report [PDF] about the need to develop better cyber intelligence sharing, analysis and defenses against the "cyber threat environment" where hackers are cracking into everyone's systems, from government agencies to private companies. 48 hours later, a cyberattack was launched against INSA website and the membership list was leaked after the hack. MSNBC reported that "in apparent retaliation, INSA's 'secure' computer system was hacked and the entire 3,000-person membership posted on the Cryptome.org."
