Jaikumar Vijayan | July 19, 2012
A hacker claimed to have broken into ITWallStreet.com, a website for IT professionals seeking jobs or working with Wall Street firms, and exposed highly detailed data belonging to tens of thousands of job applicants.

"GhostShell has been leaking left and right all kinds of targets, well we're here to bring some sort of order to it which is why this district will function solely to provide leaks from an economical point of view," the statement noted. "What better target to pick as a first release, than the place that puts all markets to shame in the world. Wall Street. IT Wall Street owned," the statement read.

According to Andiamo's website, the firm is the leading technology recruiting firm for the financial services sector. The company helps Wall Street firms find IT staff in areas such as development, infrastructure, database and process management.
