    A hacktivist group called TeamPoison (TeaMP0isoN) has leaked more than 100 usernames, email addresses, and passwords belonging to the United Nations, claiming that the UN is guilty of corruption. The user data appears to belong to individuals at the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), UNICEF, World Health Organisation (WHO), and other groups, according to news reports.

    The gang noted, when publishing its stash on PasteBin, that some of the user IDs appeared to have a blank password.
