A group purportedly affiliated with Anonymous shared consumer details in a document posted Friday
A group claiming affiliation with hackers, Anonymous, say they’ve released personal information including credit card numbers for customers of Amazon, Sony PlayStation, XBox Live and more companies.
Using the Twitter handle @AnyonyousGlobo, the group uploaded a document to file-sharing site Ghostbin on Friday containing login info, passwords, credit card numbers and expiration dates for retail sites like Twitch.tv and Hulu Plus, according to media reports. The document is no longer available online.

Additional mainstream entities were reported by The Daily Dot as Dell Computers, Origin.com and Playboy. The list of those allegedly affected also included dozens of subscriber-based adult entertainment sites.
For a last round of laughs, or “lulz” as the group put it, it tweeted a link to download Sony Pictures’ “The Interview” — the film itself the center of a hacking saga with international fallout and terrorist threats that has played out through the holidays.
Anonymous was previously connected to hacking recruitment documents from the Church of Scientology and financial information from the Westboro Baptist Church.
“Amazon was not hacked,” a rep for the e-commerce giant said in a statement to TheWrap.
“We have no evidence of a security breach in Xbox Live services. Microsoft takes the security of our customers’ data very seriously and employs a team of professionals to monitor and manage the security of the services that process and store customer data,” a Microsoft Spokesperson said.
Reps for PlayStation and Walmart have not yet returned TheWrap’s request for comment.
Over Christmas, Hackers identified as Lizard Squad claimed credit for disabling user access to PlayStation and Xbox’s respective live gaming networks.
“We are aware some users are unable to sign into Xbox Live. Our teams are working to resolve the issue. Visit xbox.com/support for status updates,” a Microsoft spokesperson told TheWrap on Thursday.
When asked to clarify the nature of the service disruption, they added the company does not share details on the root cause of specific issues.
PlayStation confirmed their own connectivity problems, tweeting, “We’re aware that some users are having issues logging into PSN – engineers are investigating.”
