Thousands fall victim to credit card hacking

Victims of a data breach at security think tank Stratfor apparently are being targeted a second time after speaking out.

Stratfor said Monday on its Facebook page that people who offered support after the company revealed that the loose-knit hacking movement "Anonymous" had broken into its computers "may be being targeted for doing so."

A Twitter feed that asserts it's associated with Anonymous on Monday mocked victims who spoke to The Associated Press. And affiliates of anonymous asserted they'd removed more funds from the account of a victim who spoke out on Facebook.

Stratfor's website and email remained suspended Monday.

Hackers said they stole thousands of client credit card numbers and other personal information from the company. Unauthorized donations made from some of the accounts are likely to be reversed.
