The hacking attacks continue to happen online around the world with some of the attacks resulting in serious data loss for the government and private companies. Hacker group TeaMp0isioN has hacked the UN and taken their stolen email addresses, usernames, and passwords and out them up on Paste Bin. Apparently, the hacker group thinks the UN is corrupt.

The posted data in the leak has over a hundred usernames, email addresses, and passwords that are from people working in the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), UNICEF, and the World Health Organization. It seems that some of the email account holders made it easy for hackers with some usernames apparently having blank passwords.

Some think that the hackers used vulnerability on the website of the UNDP to extract the stolen details. This same group of hackers has been busy with the defacing of websites including the RIM Blackberry blog and others. The hacker group doesn't appear involved with the recent AT&T hack that resulted in $2 million in funding for terrorists.
