According to CyberWarNews.com Anonymous set its sites on oil giants Shell, BP, Gazprom, and Rosneft in what has been dubbed “Save the Arctic Phase 2”.  This comes on the heels of phase one in which account details including administrator accounts, passwords and other server info was stolen from Exxon and released.

According to the messages posted on pastebin, the account were used to sign the petition on savethearctic.org and, more disturbingly, for phishing attacks.  Hacktivism is a growing concern for all companies.  Whether it be to combat the perceived unfair distribution of wealth of capitalism, support of US defense industry, or environmental issues, hacktivists are increasingly active against corporations.
