Event quite common in the last times, it looks like another FBI contractor has been hacked, as a consolidated tradition, on Friday. This time the victim is ManTech and the hack has been claimed by Anonymous with a preview twitted by the AnonymousIRC account:
If confirmed the hack could sound quite embarassing, since, as mentioned on the tweet, nearly one year ago, Mantech won a $100M contract for FBI cybersecurity services.
On the other hand, Friday risks seriously to become a black day for FBI after other two infamous attacks happened on the same day (for what Anonymous defines #FFFriday): on June, the 3rd, 180 usernames, real names, passwords, and email addresses were leaked from another FBI contractor, Infraguard, and posted publicily by the LulzSec; on July, the 9h, IRC Federal was hacked, and the content of the leak, dumped at The Pirate Bay.
But also Monday is not a particular safe day for U.S. contractors after Anonymous attacked consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton on July, the 12th, and released details of internal data including 90,000 military emails and passwords.
