Step aside Anonymous, here comes The Unknowns

Posted on May 3, 2012


The latest shadowy hacker group to strike is calling itself The Unknowns, and they’re bragging they’ve hacked NASA Glenn Research Center, the U.S. Air Force, the European Space Agency and others, posting some network-access details.

The group’s missive left on Pastebin this week claims that its list of “victims” also includes the Thai Royal Navy, Harvard, Renault Company, the French Ministry of Defense and the Jordanian Yellow Pages. The Unknowns aren’t saying their intrusions occurred because they didn’t like the organizations they targeted for some reason — which is the usual Anonymous explanation. Rather, their motivation seems more to show off their security wiles and “wisdom,” according to their own explanation.
