Stratfor settles class-action over Anon megahack with freebies 29 Jun 2012 Stratfor has agreed to forgo $ 1.75m in income to settle a class action lawsuit arising from a high-profile hack by hacktivist group Anonymous against the global intelligence firm’s systems last December. Anonymous-affiliated hackers broke into Stratfor’s systems in the run-up to Christmas last year before publishing hundreds of thousands of email addresses belonging to subscribers along with an estimated 4,000 customer credit records. Stratfor’s website was also thrashed during the attack, which allowed hackers to extract confidential internal emails, which soon found their way onto WikiLeaks.
