The Guy Fawkes Day start with the hack of 28,000 Paypal Accounts. AnonymousPress tweeted, “Paypal hacked by Anonymous as part of our November 5th protest privatepaste.com/e8d3b2b2b1 #5Nov” (File Removed now)
Private Paste documents contained 27,935 entries from Paypal database table “mc_customers” including emails, names, passwords (encrypted) and corresponding telephone numbers.
However according to PayPal’s head of PR, they claim to be investigating the alleged hack, but so far they have stated that they are unable to validate any evidence that there has been a security breach which we can only take to be a good thing
