Hacker Group Breaches Library of Congress Site, Publishes Passwords
A group of hackers claims to have breached the official website of the Library of Congress, America’s national library.

The group claiming responsibility, BlitzSec, decried the wildly unpopular US Congress and said it used a SQL injection attack to access the Library of Congress Website's back end database and expose user names, passwords and email addresses. The group has posted data taken from the Library on the file sharing Web site Pastebin.
