A pair of hackers that recently claimed responsibility for a spree of defacements on US government military web servers, hit the US Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) on Friday night and posted data stolen from the US Defense Logistics Agency (DLA). Screenshots of two DLA databases were posted on a subdomain of the Secretary of Defense site at OSD.Mil.

    In the defacement the hackers also claimed to have full system-wide access to the OSD databases and the screenshots show names, logon details and encrypted passwords for DLA employees.

    Earlier in the week the hackers, going by the name 'the Deceptive Duo', had defaced websites on the US Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command network, leaving database screenshots containing the email addresses and full names of customers for the major airline Midwest Express and the Union bank.
