Hackers Steal Old Usernames, Passwords for U.N. Employees

The U.N. Development Program says that the user names and passwords of more than 100 email accounts posted online by a hackers group are no longer active and were extracted from an old server.

Sausan Ghosheh, UNDP chief of external communications, said Wednesday that the organization's current server has not been compromised, and no active passwords were on the list posted by the "Team Poison" hackers group.

Ghosheh says UNDP has found the affected server, which dates back to 2007, and has taken it offline.

Many of the accounts posted on pastebin.com website earlier this week appear to belong to UNDP staffers.

Team Poison is among several politically motivated cyber activist groups.
