Illustration for article titled Anonymous Hits Universal Music And Viacom

The group of hackers released information they grabbed from Universal Music Group including company information and application data. There was also a handful of usernames and (tsk, tsk) plain text passwords from umusic.com users. The Viacom dump was a bit more ho-hum, containing only a bunch of scripts and information about its servers.
