Another breach. However, this one looks more about a payout then releasing illegal doings like wikileaks. Apparently it named names and dumped personal info.



A hacker stole thousands of documents from Mexico’s embassy in Guatemala and posted them online. The hacker, who goes by the online handle @0x55Taylor, tweeted a link to the data earlier this week. The data is no longer available for download after the cloud host pulled the data offline, but the hacker shared the document dump with TechCrunch to verify its contents.


The hacker told TechCrunch in a message: “A vulnerable server in Guatemala related to the Mexican embassy was compromised and I downloaded all the documents and databases.” He said he contacted Mexican officials but he was ignored.

Definitely looks like someone trying to extort money. TechCrunch should turn it over to some authority and let them find the guy/girl.

Should have gone to the Guatemalan government, i mean why go to the Mexican one? They could not give a s*t about anything anyways, and it was the Guatemalan embassy so probably it was more related to what that country does than Mexico.

Anyways what could possibly be found there, is not like both countries had a lot to hide LMFAO, everything is mostly out in the open as far as corruption goes
