ITWallStreet.com Hacked 50,000 Accounts

An Internet hacker belonging to a group called TeamGhostShell broke into recruiting website ITWallStreet.com, Computer World reported. The information compromised, which includes full names, mailing addresses, email addresses, usernames, hashed passwords and phone numbers, was posted online on Thursday, and thousands of hashed passwords have reportedly already been decrypted. The leaked data also includes details such as salary and bonus expectations of the potential employees and even feedback on specific candidates. Another file contained email conversations and thousands of phone call records between recruiters and potential candidates.
