Anonymous/#AntiSec has claimed responsibility for the hack of a global intelligence company named Stratfor.  Hackers were able to obtain tens of thousands of credit card numbers and other personal information from Stratfor.com.  In addition to credit card numbers with security codes, addresses, and names, the hackers obtained 200GB of emails.  The hackers also claim to have used the credit card information to make over $1 million in donations to charities. Hackers later revealed that the information was even easier to use since it had not been encrypted.
